The Architect-Walker is Wrights & Sites’ anti-manifesto for changing a world while exploring it. It is a tool for playful debate, collaboration, intervention and spatial meaning-making. An invitation to engage.
Walking (including drift, dérive and radical walking) is the principal way for people to engage with the built environment. Artist-walkers, performance artists, urban activists and others have created a new discipline out of urban walking.
This book takes a step further, acknowledging the more active role we can all take. It reinvents the walker as architect-walker and offers tools and tactics for the engaged urban walker, a philosophy of ambulant architecture and countless examples of ways in which the authors and others are already practising architect-walking.
