Scott Burnham, a creative director, writer and consultant who is specialized in design, urbanism and open source methodologies, has recently created his “Urban Guide for Alternate Use” for the upcoming, brand-new and Europe-wide “Exchange Radical Moments” live art festival.
It’s an open source city-specific field guide for alternate uses for existing urban infrastructure. As Burnham wrote on his website, he “wanted to create a platform for exchange of ideas for alternate urban solutions based on existing structures and systems.”
Those of you who are as curious as me to get insights into the urban guide, have still to wait – the release date has not been published yet…
“From hacks such as using traffic bollards as ladders to gain a better view of a football training session, to re-imagining Amsterdam street sweepers as bird baths between shifts, the Urban Guide for Alternate Use is an open platform for people to explore and re-imagine the uses of their existing city’s objects and areas.”
