development aesthetics tumblr

some recommended reading:

Development aesthetics tumblr - developmentaesthetics.tumblr.com - is an excellent collection of images & analysis of the advertising hordings around new build developments, often in areas of gentrification.

Related reading - a predecessor of this type of analysis is Iain Sinclair's London Orbital, where he pulls part the imagery and the language of hordings around redevelopments of all the many former mental asylums around the M25 in the late 1990s.

Finally, John Grindrod's post on Stevenage, a town centre I know well - http://dirtymodernscoundrel.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/stevenage-1971.html
