A New Kind of Bleak: Journeys Through Urban Britain

by Owen Hatherley
£25.99   paperback  Verso Books (2013)

A New Kind of Bleak: Journeys Through Urban Britain by Owen Hatherley The urban state of the nation—from Olympic dreams to broken Britain This is what austerity looks like: a nation surviving on the results of what conservatives privately call “the progressive nonsense” of the Big Society agenda.
 
In a journey that begins and ends in the capital, but takes in Belfast, Aberdeen, Plymouth and Brighton, Hatherley explores modern Britain’s urban landscape and finds a short-sighted disarray of empty buildings, malls and glass towers. Yet while A New Kind of Bleak anatomizes “broken Britain,” Hatherley also looks to a hopeful future and discovers fragments of what it might look like.
 
Illustrated by Laura Oldfield Ford, author and artist of Savage Messiah.
