Kicking against the pricks

Earlier this year I wrote about the basic inhumanity of so-called "defensive architecture", so was pleased to discover that some people have found a novel way of reclaiming the streets. Space, Not Spikes transformed one such instance of defensive architecture by converting it into a sleeping/eating area with a small library of books on architecture and urban planning. Further guerrilla interventions of this sort are certainly to be encouraged.
