Abstract or Description:


This proposal explores the development of a “fictional town plan” and how this might be used as a platform or working structure to assemble and represent the voices and opinions of local community groups and individuals who are affected or implicated by town planning but seldom offered an opportunity to comment on the organization and direction of their communities, it’s architecture, it’s history and it’s future.

The intention of the proposal is not to present a viable scheme to be physically realised, but to create a forum through which local ideas and critiques of the history and the future of the town might be discussed and presented through a tangible outcome that will take the form of a Fictional Town Plan.
