on the My proposition dating from July 2005 is just offering an open re-use of the storehouses, since the urban pattern is actually quite nice in that area:

OF COURSE money for infrastructure is always a good idea and needed in that area, too. there are three main favelas in that area who would appreciate such an action.

One thought on “¥€$ – urbanism

  1. mayor of Seaton

    Imagine living in a Tesco house, sending your child to a Tesco school, swimming in a Tesco pool and, of course, shopping at the local Tesco superstore. According to the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (Cabe), the government’s adviser on architecture and design, this collective monopoly is not an imaginary dystopia. “Tesco Towns” on this model are already being planned across the UK, from Inverness in Scotland to Seaton in Devon.

    Tesco is proposing to build a superstore, hundreds of homes and a hotel in the Devon town.
