Hows everyones summer going?, and How is every ones reading going?

I just finished a stewart home book (not the one on the list) “down and out in shoreditch and hoxton” and wow that was extreme:  Rape, murder, prostitution, time traveling, narrative breakdown.  Hard going in places, extremely odd and seemingly  arbitrary in others.

Another book I thought some of you might be interested in  is Fracesco Careri’s  2007 “Walkscapes”.  It’s primarily about walking practices (a current interest of mine) but what might be of particular general interest is the definitions of two forms of architecture : “architecture seen as physical construction of space  and form, as opposed to an architecture seen as perception and symbolic construction of space”

  1. Stewart Home: without being a strong advocate of his interests, I like his extremism. There is no turning back with work like that.
