Actions: What You Can Do With The City

#67. Wood Makes People Big as Cars: “The Austrian civil engineer Hermann Knoflacher developed the Gehzeug, or walkmobile, in 1975 to allow a pedestrian to approximate the amount of space taken by a motorist. It is ideal for protesting against the primacy given to automobiles in the city, or just taking a walk in traffic.” Spannende Ausstellung im Cana­dian Centre for Archi­tec­ture: Actions: What You Can Do With The City (bis 19. April 2009) “explores the thou­sands of exam­ples around the globe of people reclaim­ing urban space through Do-​It-​Yourself (DIY) actions in order to human­ize the failed urban real­i­ties around them. While urban action has become a hot sub­ject over the recent years, the CCA has approached the sub­ject from a broad cri­tique that mixes 99 Actions done by artists, archi­tects, design­ers, politi­cians, activists, ath­letes and most impor­tantly aver­age cit­i­zens.” (*) Hier gibt´s die Essays der Kuratoren, (1, 2), und hier noch mehr Infos.
