Dismaland and protest define Urban Realm's autumn edition
October 16 2015
Several of our faded resort towns may have presumed to have left their best days behind them but are springing back to life amidst a groundswell of hipster fueled enthusiasm for irony and the kitsch. We explore the likes of Banksy’s droll Dismaland theme park in Weston-Super-Mare to Wayne Hemingway’s sublime re-imagination of Margate’s Dreamland to see the effects on the ground.
The Power of Place is further emphasised by our report looking at the scenes of iconic protests such as Istanbul’s Gezi Park and the Occupy protests which rocked London, can public space shape and stoke public opinion?
With schools now back we also take a look at the role of education in meeting growing manpower needs, as industry looks to collaborate with schools and government to enthuse a new generation with a career in construction.
We also cast an eye over the engineering profession in the latest of our industry reports, examining some of the biggest achievements of the sector over the past twelve months.
Last but not least forum regular Big Chantelle steps out from behind the digital curtain. Her pronouncements speak at once for everyone and no-one but will her own identity finally be revealed? Grab your copy to find out!
