Architecture of Conflict | James Rawlings | Via

In his photo series Architecture of Conflict, photographer James Rawlings got a rare chance to photograph the daily life of an eerily active ghost town. England’s county of Kent is home to a collection of faux building fronts and avenues, like something from a film set, built to sharpen the response of London’s metro police in quelling an urban uprising.

“Before I actually went there, the main thing that interested me was just the place itself, the fact that there was a whole town just purely built for this reason,” Rawlings says. “I like the idea of it being a kind of contrived, built-up thing–an architecture meant just for conflict.”
