See images of the London Festival of Architecture's paper town

A new town was created in south London over the weekend – made entirely from cardboard and construction paper (see images below).

The Home Sweet Home event, run by Broadway Malyan and Subject to Change, saw artists, architects and members of the public creating their dream homes from craft materials, and adding them to a huge paper town which featured its own pub, church and railway, and even its own radio station – Residents FM.

The AJ went to the opening of the project on Saturday morning (12 July) at the Ragged School.

Unfortunately the town had a limited life-span, and all the paper houses were repossessed and deconstructed (and hopefully recycled) on Sunday evening.
