Educated in the Modernist tradition of architecture in Britain and Denmark, Hackneys return to England in the 1970s changed his outlook completely.

Cities like Birmingham and Sheffield had been ruined by ill-conceived planning- whole communities had been torn apart by massive destruction of Victorian terraces, and relocated to grim tower block estates. To those communities that he has rescued from the threat of redevelopment, Rod Hackney is a local hero. Determined to save Britains inner cities, he has been a major influence on Prince Charles and a powerful spokesman for the silent majority of the urban poor, who often have no say as to where and how they live.
