New Town

How do you build a new town?

The UK is facing a housing crisis. In response, the current government pays lip service to building a new generation of garden cities while the Lyons Housing Review proposes recapturing the spirit of post-war New Towns.

But are these models still relevant today? Were the political and social circumstances that brought the New Towns into existence an isolated instance? Or can we regain the capacity to imagine such a collective project?

This year we reinvented the New Town, from its economic and legal structures to its myths and customs, and propose new models for planned settlement.
