note = "Investigation of the New Town aesthetic and its condition as part of the ‘entropic modern.’ The research process involved archive visits, image gathering, interviews and discussions. Produced an interactive-website combining image, text, audio and weblinks in an intuitive interface, with logical yet unlabelled controls. Behind this playful frontend, a text site comprising dialogues and interviews with some of the designers, planners, architects and residents. The work continues online. Cumbernauld Town Centre is now a crumbling shadow of its former self, which has just been awarded a UNESCO listing as an architecturally significant 20th century landmark. A landmark of {"}New Brutalism' and megastructural architecture, it has been derided and neglected. It embodies some powerful lessons on architecture, its love affair with functionalism, and the design mindset of the Cold War. The work is about modernism as lived experience, and an attempt to return a sense of optimism and utopian spirit to the records and archive imagery from that experiment. Funded by SAC Research Award (£5000) and RIAS Millenium Award. (£3,973) In collaboration with GROSSMAX landscape architects, the interactive section of the project became part of the Re:motion project, shown around Scotland at venues such as ‘The Lighthouse’ Glasgow, Eden Court Theatre Inverness and at the Rotterdam International Architecture Biennial (May 7th-July 7th 2003) with accompanying publication (ISBN 0 9536533 74) In these loci the work was shown as a projection in a ‘tent’ structure within the gallery.",
