Overview

The Architect-Walker is Wrights & Sites' anti-manifesto for changing a world while exploring it. It is a tool for playful debate, collaboration, and intervention. A few suggestions and observations from the book include: Build something, however small, that is not allowed; Un-pave your garden. Make a hedgehog run under the fence; Crawl more; Protect what gaps you can. They aren't empty. They aren't yours; In a group and in bright sunlight, carry sticks and timbers. Only pay attention to the shadows you are casting.

Author Biography

Formed in 1997 in Exeter, UK, Wrights & Sites are four artist-researchers (Stephen Hodge, Simon Persighetti, Phil Smith, and Cathy Turner) whose work focuses on people's relationships to places, cities and walking. They use disrupted walking tactics as tools for playful debate, collaboration, intervention and spatial meaning-making.
