Elephant and Castle shopping centre has been known as one of London's biggest architectural mistakes for decades, but now major plans for redevelopment are under way.
The shopping centre was built on a bomb site in a destroyed area of London and opened its doors in 1965.
It was hoped that it would become one of the first US style indoor shopping malls in Europe, however the building has always been seen as an eyesore and its dour concrete facade was even painted in a bright pink colour at one time to try and improve the public image of the building.
The centre which is located in the Southwark area of London was bought for £80m around two years ago and now its new owners have unveiled plans for a major renovation that is part of a wider regeneration project in the area worth around £3bn.
The plans which went on display at the centre last week show how the site will provide new homes for thousands of people including local residents and students attending the nearby University of the Arts London (UAL). At the centre of the plans is a campus for the University and its London College of Communication. The campus will accommodate 4,500 students once complete.
