Propland: Reprogramming Television Centre
Propland: Reprogramming Television Centre is a collection of texts by graduating MA Critical Writing in Art & Design students that explores the legacies of the Television Centre as well as the wider area and communities of White City, London. Built to be the headquarters of the BBC and once known as the home of British television, Television Centre was sold for redevelopment in 2012. Although the iconic circular central building, studio one and selected elements of the building are protected through Grade II listing, other parts and surrounding buildings have been demolished to make way for housing, offices and leisure facilities.
Writer and architect Douglas Murphy contributed an essay to the publication and helped mentor the students, along with Dr Emily LaBarge, who advised the students throughout the project and contributed an Afterword to the book.
