Utopia Ending by Gianluca Calise investigates the urban transformation of London since the 2012 Olympics, and includes photographs taken between 2014 to 2019.
Through images and text, including three interviews and a final essay, the author compares the current finance-driven development of the city with the post-WWII expansion based on council houses: investments in social housing have been almost entirely eradicated and the new buildings are more financial assets for global investors, rather than homes for Londoners.
