Remapping High Wycombe: journeys beyond the western sector

ByJohn Rogers

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book is the outcome of the Remapping High Wycombe project by Cathy and John Rogers. Urban planners, surveyors, architects, and developers had descended on the town of High Wycombe in England producing studies, plans, axonometric diagrams for a new town centre redevelopment. A “mixed use retail-driven scheme” called ‘Eden’ would rise in an area once known as The Western Sector. The purpose of our project was to re-map and re-imagine the town before it changed forever. Our work would form a parallel scheme, a psychogeographical vision of the area. The book takes the form of several walks or 'dérives', purposeful drifts stalking moods, atmospheres, hidden histories and lost voices. Some of these journeys represent a personal topography of the area, others are reports of more public interventions. There is a DVD to accompany the book.
