The cul-de-sac in the forest: the supermodernity of Center Parcs

Crouch, Amelia and Cooper, David (2019) The cul-de-sac in the forest: the supermodernity of Center Parcs. In: Practising place: creative and critical reflections on place. Art Editions North. ISBN 9781906832353

Abstract

This co-authored text takes Center Parcs, Whinfell Forest, as a site through which to explore the multi-layered construction of ‘place.’ Marketing images, holiday photographs, maps, poetry, anecdotes and terms & conditions all impinge upon the lived experience of the holiday park. The article combines academic and creative approaches to writing to present a portrait of the site. Developed as part of Practising Place – an artist led research project by In Certain Places, at the University of Central Lancashire
