PoohTown is based in 1920′s Slough, England, and uses ‘Winnie the Pooh’ to reflect on the potential of today’s cities in prescribing policies of happiness alongside familiar amenities. This speculative proposal is a device to enable the potential of a happily-ever-after to be explored beyond the limitations of Slough’s industrial sprawl ambitions in the 1920s.
A ‘Utility City’ proposed in Newham, London, rehouses thousands of residents and rehabilitates the city by implementing ‘the people’ as an architectural layer. The proposal is instigated by new bedroom tax laws in April 2013, London, which relocate housing problems, but arguably do not solve them.
