Robots of Brixton
Robots of Brixton is a short animated film, created by Kibwe Tavares, an architecture student from London. It depicts a dystopian future, years from now, when robots do man's dirty work and are discriminated against by human's.
Tavares used the riots of Brixton in the 1980's as a reference point for the film and inspiration for some of the scenes.
He created the film for his Masters in Architecture and this shows in the impressive imagery . The robots in the film live in shanty town like structures tacked onto buildings and Tavares has transformed the Barrier Block, AKA Southwyck House, in Brixton and the Town Hall.
