DIY landmark tour 2010
a centrifugal project
corporation st area, belfast 2010
The DIY landmark tour was an alternative micro tour of a small area of
Corporation St in North Belfast. The landmarks in question are seemingly
unorthodox and frequently temporary. However they reflect some of the
detail of this peripheral location which straddles Belfast city centre
and the industrial dock area.
tour can be taken without a guide, participants use the drawings
on free leaflets provided to locate the landmarks and see if
they are still there. The tour looks at the ways in which citizens
come to know and shape their cities, the places where they
live and work.

Book of Europe. The Centrifugal Book of Europe is a 'map' of
the social, cultural and political space of contemporary Europe,
and of the phantasmic Europes that may yet be called into being.

and theorists who have come together to investigate the spatial,
political and economic forces producing contemporary ideas
