Don’t be confused by the title – guiding is not entirely the issue here, rather creating realisable alternatives and a new reality. Volume takes the reader on a ‘guided’ tour around the world to explore different cities, their possibilities and new discoveries. Respective projects visited in different cities include those found in Melbourne, Istanbul and different locations in Russia, while other highlights include; Atelier Bow-Wow’s guide to the 13th Arrondissement of Paris; an atlas of love and hate – a visit to the Detroit unreal estate agency, and an essay on the relevance of Jane Jacobs. Included in a separate edition is an invaluable guidebook to Beirut which presents an exploded view of a city with its multiple truths, myths and historical falsifications that in turn acts as a field manual for the 21st century urban explorer.
