Both part of London and a city in its own right, Croydon's story is unique and complex. In this short documentary, the second in a two-part series from the Architecture Foundation, Phineas Harper examines the future of Croydon asking what architects, other boroughs and the Mayor can learn from Croydon's ambitious approach to planning.
Past one of the documentary, The High-Rise and Fall, is available to watch for free here. In it Phineas Harper investigates Croydon's history, piecing together a story of big visions with a whiff of corruption.
