The idea for "Ground Control" emerged from a series of three agenda setting reports. The first focused on gated communities and ghettos in the US, questioning to what extent these trends are emerging in the UK. The second, "Northern Soul," looked at polarization and culture in one British city, Newcastle, and the third, "What kind of World Are We Building?" investigated the growing privatization of public space.
