Disaster recovery and the World Trade Center
Charlotte Heath-Kelly

example, the Manchester bombing of 1996 (discussed earlier) was marked with a simple plaque on a postbox that survived the blast. Urban redevelopment was deemed sufficient for the accomplishment of the recovery, without a need for memorialisation. Similarly, the IRA’s Brighton hotel bombing that targeted the ruling Conservative Party’s conference of 1984 and nearly assassinated Prime Minister Thatcher was

ambiance of temple settings generated by the contrasting environments afforded by Singapore’s urban redevelopment in a rich, Chinese-majority city-state with a comparatively less developed and unregulated ethnic Chinese minority in an urban township, this sub-chapter will instead focus on communal rituals and community events. My intention is to convey how an emotional attachment to Yinfu Tan’s Di Ya Pek, underpinned by reciprocity and debt, has contributed to the generation of a close-knit ethno-religious community. Recognition of this temple

resemble ‘everyday forms of resistance’ against government-sanctioned urban redevelopment. Returning to the ‘Master Plan’ for the Republic of Singapore, it has undergone seven reviews since it was first approved by the government in August 1958, and multiple amendments have been, and continue to be, made. The 1972 amendments allowing for the destruction of cemeteries ultimately led to the following chain of events – events which provided the societal catalyst for the transfiguring hybridisation observed in 2017’s cemetery rituals

boutique hotel. 67 Most of the shops and bars that my interviewees describe are now gone, with some exceptions – Lavery's, Queen's Student Union (although it now has a different name), the Ulster Hall – and while public spaces like the Cornmarket still exist, the context of the city around them is indelibly changed. In general it would appear that the little that remains of the punk scene in the built environment of the city has been enlisted into processes of top-down urban redevelopment and rebranding

the 1950s was one of decline and change, in which ‘modern mass production, increasing geographical mobility and urban redevelopment were breaking up traditional working class communities, while the “economic emancipation” of the working class was being bought at the expense of a cultural subjection to the hollow banalities of mass entertainment’. 95 For the theatre and film directors and writers who came to be

, commitment has characterised club activity. 123 The regional cine scene thrived during the 1960s. High membership enabled many groups to average several club productions per year, films often achieving commendation at regional and national level.

socio-economic hardships and prolonged uncertainties of multi-phased urban redevelopment, Brookes’s films highlight the idea that, for those that lived, worked and played there, these old neighbourhoods were much more than the mean streets perceived by contemporary professionals. Loss and regret underlie scenes that chart how local character, meaning and identity radically alter. Footage of his wife and oldest grandchild as they walk

institutional religious buildings. Thirdly, the mission retained a highly public role up until the 1960s. The only testaments to its former strengths are in archives and the physical remains of its buildings. Lastly, part of the explanation of its decline resides with material change and urban redevelopment that fundamentally changed the relationship that people had to the city and how they used it, with consequences for its cultural institutions.
