ADS2: New Politics, New Urbanism

Escaping the ‘...hornswogglers, snozzwangers, terrible wicked whangdoodles...’
Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Over 9,000 asylum seekers in the UK see the insides of removal centres each year. By devising a polemic where Cadbury’s remain in the UK by utilising labour, I explore the notions of identity and perception of values, to ask a broader question of how we see ourselves and others, in the context of asylum seekers and foreign people in the broader context? The project comes in the form of a cross typology between Bournville, a removal centre and a public park. By constructing an absurd narrative loosely based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the Oompa Loompas, I aim to reveal our current attitudes to this demographic.
