Ballads for Lancashire's lost utopia
Skelmersdale, the Lancashire town where 1960s planners tried – and failed – to create a utopian housing scheme, is celebrated in an unlikely new concept album. But what happened to our dreams of creating ideal homes for everyone?Magnetic North’s first album – Orkney: Symphony of the Magnetic North – was inspired by the Orcadian childhood of one of the band’s members, Erland Cooper. If you grow up on Orkney your memory will be blessed with folk tunes and tales, seascapes, selkies and strathspeys. And your concept album will be – as it says on the cover – symphonic. The idea for that album came to Cooper in a dream. Of course it did. So it made sense for the band to make a new album about the childhood of one of its other members – Simon Tong. Except that Tong grew up in Skelmersdale.Skem as it is universally known.The problem with utopias is that one person imagines them and everyone else has to live in themWe lived through a utopian project and we saw utopia crumble.
The eco guide to geodesic domes
Take a leaf from the designs of Buckminster Fuller and redefine the space you live in with a freedomeMost of us are trapped in rectangular living, trying to retrofit eco-efficiency, but we could be enjoying life in a geodesic freedome. For starters, freedomes are inherently efficient: they need no intermediate columns or supporting walls. After all, a geodesic line is the shortest line between two points on the surface of a spheroid, and the sphere is nature’s most efficient shape.Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller, who created the Montreal Biosphère in 1967, was the foremost pioneer of geodesic domes, the master of tensegrity – tensile integrity – and the reason why geodesic structures are forever associated with eco living.

Legacy of Cathy Come Home should fuel fury over homelessness
Fifty years ago the landmark drama made waves, but the fact that this tale is just as relevant today should spark outrageAs the 50th anniversary of Cathy Come Home, the BBC’s broadcast play on homelessness nears, its legacy is brought up repeatedly. The television drama, written by Jeremy Sandford and directed by Ken Loach, shocked viewers by discussing issues hidden from view - homelessness, poverty and, in the final scene, children being taken away from their parents by social services. Homelessness and poor housing was a huge issue back in 1966, but arguably Cathy Come Home, a hard-hitting, social realist drama, forced the public to face the reality of what was happening in towns and cities across the country. Shelter was founded in the same year, the play prompted a parliamentary debate and many people decided Something Must Be Done – namely, the development of more social housing. Continue reading...
