A Taste of PoohTown

Recent University College London graduate Nick Elias's PoohTown is the recipient of the Silver Medal in the 2014 RIBA President's Medals Student Awards. Below is a taste of the amazing project, in which, "1920s Slough is revisited to capitalize from the economy of 'happiness' as an alternative industry using Winnie the Pooh as a metaphorical protagonist for happiness." I recommend clicking over to his project to see the rest, or if you're in London, PoohTown and other "urban tales" will be on display at Carousel from the 6th of March to the 10th of April.

  1. If you want to get a favor of what Slough is like, check out poet Sir John Betjeman's poem about Slough set to music (YouTube link). Thanks to Peter W. for the tip.
