The Suburb: A Falsity, A Fantasy (2015)

Dissertation for final year project, BA Design at Goldsmiths.

"What comes after the nostalgic suburb? I argue that we choose to avoid conceptualising a new breed of suburb out of fear of losing the essential nostalgic formats upon which the culture has been reinforced. Thus, the suburbs come to be a haven for denial, and an environment which reacts to any slight change with existential anxiety. If change means 'future', the stagnant suburb is symptomatic of our postmodern depression."
