Our Model London series of paper models brings the city to you. Cut, craft and learn about some spectacular London buildings whilst building your own London Skyline.
Built atop a spoil tip, Dawson’s Heights is a monument of the south London skyline. It was designed by architect Kate Macintosh at just 26 years old while she was working in LB Southwark’ in-house architecture department and built at the tail end of a boom in state-led social housing provision in the UK.
To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the completion of Dawson's Heights we've reprinted our sold out Model London and this time we added an illustration of Kate herself.
Net design: George Allen, Monika Marinova and James Roach
