Explore Everything: Place-Hacking the City [9781781685570]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
What does it feel like to find the city's edge, to explore its forgotten tunnels and scale unfinished skyscrapers high above the metropolis? Explore Everything reclaims the city, recasting it as a place for endless adventure. Plotting expeditions from London, Paris, Berlin, Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, Bradley L. Garrett has tested the boundaries of urban security in order to experience the city in ways beyond the everyday. He calls it place hacking : the recoding of closed, secret, hidden and forgotten urban spaces to make them realms of opportunity. The book is also a manifesto, combining philosophy, politics and adventure, on our rights to the city and how to understand the twenty-first-century metropolis.
AUTHOR: Bradley L. Garrett is a writer, photographer and researcher at the University of Oxford. After studying anthropology at the University of California Riverside and working in Australia, Mexico and Hawaii, he became an urban explorer, photographing off-limits urban spaces in both the US and Europe, his exploits have been featured on TV, radio, GQ magazine, the Guardian and the Telegraph. His latest adventures can be followed on www.bradleygarrett.com.
