Description The results of Newcastle’s neighbourhood regeneration competition – Scotswood Expo - form the backbone of issue 276. Unusually for a privately funded housing development, the ethos of the Scotswood Masterplan is a radical rethinking of how the changing needs and desires of the family, and the wider community, are to be accommodated. Published this month for the first time are the innovative solutions from the 6 winning practices. The house-building theme continues as Jake Tilson journeys to the North Sea port of Stavanger for the Norwegian Wood conference, and uncovers 200 years of timber-building history. Jules Wright, ex-theatre director, muses on the process of converting her favourite disused power station into a unique, and highly successful, arts venue, now known as the Wapping Project. Gary Hustwit, the Californian filmmaker behind last year’s surprise hit Helvetica (a film about a font) discusses his next project: Objectified, a film about industrial design. And we report on the recently unveiled Photographer’s Gallery in its new Soho location. Elsewhere in this issue: Herbert Wright thinks Dubai may be beginning to resemble a real city at last in Comment; Donald Trump and Hoskins Architects make unlikely bedfellows on a controversial golf village project in View; Guy Bird sends A Letter from Detroit; and the delightful Steven Appleby shares his vision of London in Paper City.
