Non-Plan chest

  • Comment

It's back: after years quietly bubbling below the surface of planning and location strategies, Non-Plan has resurfaced via a series of essays edited by Jonathan Hughes and Simon Sadler and published by Architectural Press. Non-Plan was propagated by Cedric Price, Peter Hall, Reyner Banham and Paul Barker in the late 1960s, addressing deregulation, environmental freedom, responses to global markets and technological change. An attack on tidy-minded centralist thinking, the concept influenced both free marketeers and planners seeking a third way between uncontrolled development and heritage stasis. Compulsory reading.
