Abstract

This article explores the origins of the British Model Village, the first of which was designed and built by Charles Paget Wade at the Hampstead Garden Suburb in 1907, where he was living and working as an architect at the time. Model Villages are often sites of lament and this article will explore their peculiar and often reactionary architectures, urbanisms and politics. Their worldbuilding capacity in this article is explored through the articulation of an ongoing contemporary Model Village proposal developed by the author. Model villages have rarely been discussed in architectural discourse, and this article looks to examine how model villages are relevant to the practice of architectural model making.
