Climbing The Shard
Respect to Bradley Garrett of the London Consolidation Crew, The Man Who Climbed The Shard. (picture from The Guardian). Not just because it’s an awesome (really) and scary thing to do – at 309 metres, the tallest building in Europe and all that - but because there was a philosophy behind it. Listen to what he says about public and private space in the city, and on the necessity for us to be “citizens not inhabitants.” When it comes to seizing the commanding heights, the more vertiginous might prefer to stick to the theory.
