This seminar centres on Britain’s post-war built environment of industrial developments on the periphery of towns, shopping centres, and suburban housing estates, and investigate how this environment of semi-detached houses, cul-de-sacs, roads, and shopping centres still influences contemporary life

I suggest that urban change from the late 1950s to the early 1970s represents an atmosphere - a kind of Post-War Dream - with a desire to build hope and stability for the future.

This deep study around Newport, focuses on the final three years of the 1960s. We also look forwards to the coming decades, where these spaces of privately owned housing - away from shopping centres and centres of employment - could be the locations where many of Britain’s ageing population live.
