David edited the King’s Cross Urban Actions Field Guide for the London Festival of Architecture 2012, designed by Ken Kirton at Studio Hato.
Introducing a series of public events conceived under the banner of ‘Urban Actions’, David’s introductory essay presented a proposal for urban action inspired by Theo Crosby’s ‘How to Play the Environment Game’ (1973), before discussing the radical history of King’s Cross through four sub-categories of action: Subversion, Occupation, Play and Speculation.
