Although my interests stem from dereliction and infrastructure, I am also interested in architecture, urban planning/change and alternative usage for urban space.

Alternative lifestyles, squatting, mental health, urban art/grafitti, The politics of space, society and propaganda also interest me and can tie in with the dominant activities on this site.

These books are relevant to the wider themes surrounding our participation in the man-made environment, and are either owned by myself, read or desired! (buy me a book, you know you want to!)

  1. Good list!

    There’s also Nick McCamley’s “Secret Underground Cities” which predominently features underground Wiltshire, but is a good read, and has some good informative maps too.
