A chat with the Orwellian mastermind in charge of the UK town known as Scarfolk
"Scarfolk is a quaint town in the north west of England. At first glance it appears perfectly ordinary. Neighbours chat to each other over hedges while children play in the quiet, suburban streets. Yet this provincial place has received a lot of media attention over the past five years. Rumours have surfaced claiming that the town has not progressed since 1979 and the local council's poster production points to a community that is stuck in the 1970s. It's Nice That decided to find out more about the local society and its notorious designs."

Machines for Living In: Le Cobusier’s Pivotal “Five Points of Architecture”
"Le Corbusier was a painter, writer, architect and planner, but he was also an adept promoter of novel designs and theories. So when he debuted his Maison Dom-Ino concept home, it boasted a light and elegant form, but was also cleverly named — its title referenced the look and modularity of gaming “dominoes” (with dots extruded to form columns) as well as “domus,” the Latin word for house."
