New titles in the PLACE Bookshop

City Supplements - an Alternative Urban Survey

Image copyright Phil Hession

City Supplements is published by PS² and accompanied by a series of events. It documents adventures in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter by artists, architects and historians, with the aim of finding new insights into the area.

Short articles are accompanied by foldout maps, diagrams and illustrations.

From the introduction by Peter Mutschler of PS²:

"Any of us could make further additions, make our own city supplement. All it needs is curiosity and time for a leisurely walk through the city. One will soon start to discover, appreciate, dislike and wishfully imagine aspects of the urban environment. From there, it is only a few steps further to be engaged, to act, to lobby."

Now available in the PLACE Bookshop.
Price: £1.50
