            The space of the city is shaped by multiple dynamics and tensions. Geopolitical histories, commercial interests, government policies, communities and individuals combine to keep the city in a constant state of flux. Intervening in these complex dynamics demands design techniques ...which can accommodate constantly evolving urban systems. This book explores forms of 'spatial practice' a loose and expandable set of techniques that embrace the architectural, the urban, the curatorial, the performative, the political, the digital, and the communicational as paths to participation and activism in contested urban spaces. It explores a variety of methods and techniques, physical and temporal manifestations, as well as their legacy and impact. With an emphasis on social-political practice, the 22 chapters contain essays, visual essays and interviews and feature contributions from an international set of experimental practitioners including Teddy Cruz (Estudio Teddy Cruz, San Diego), Andreas Lang (Public Works, London), The Decorators (London), EXYZT (France), and OOZE (Netherlands). Beautifully designed and in full color throughout, Spatial Practices advances dialogue and collaboration between academic and practice and is essential reading for students, researchers and professionals in architecture, urban policy and urban planning, and related fields.

            It was interesting what people in the checkout line were buying: it was all comfort food. The man in front of me had eggs, bacon, cigarettes, beer. And here we were buying pink buns. No one was buying sensible emergency rations like baked beans..." "It was just the most wonderful... feeling. A sense of hope, like a weed growing out of a crack. Just sitting in the sun listening to beautiful classical music amidst all the devastation..." Everyone in Christchurch has their own story of the quakes. There are heroic and brave stories related to the events themselves, and also longer narratives of endurance over 18 months of aftershocks. No one will ever forget this year. In The Quake Year acclaimed author Fiona Farrell interviews people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. Their stories are moving, poignant, revealing and healing. This unique book takes the reader beyond the physical damage straight into the hearts of survivors, in stories that will touch a chord with every reader. Fiona's text is enhanced by beautiful photographs by acclaimed photographer Juliet Nicholas.
