This is a zine based on Matthew Stickland's project 'offensive architecture' focusing on a style of architecture known as 'defensive' or 'hostile'. This form of architecture is incorporated into a spaces design in order to prevent particular ways of interaction, for example, a steel ball bearings on a ledge to stop skateboarding or jagged surfaces under a shelter to stop rough sleeping.
In this zine Matthew looks at four examples of defensive architecture around Dublin city. The zine documents his process of measuring out these spaces and building his own sculptural pieces to slot into or cover over them, combating the job of the defensive architecture leaving them open to interaction in ways he sees fit.
