The Urban Geographer is excited to have begun contributing to Spacing Atlantic, one of the many blogs within the Spacing network, a group of websites and magazine that focus on Canadian urban issues, ranging from the poetic to the political.

My first post, Guerilla Urban Design on Agricola, acknowledges the possibility and importance of informal urban design in response to the city’s often inadequate top-down planning, focusing on a lovely guerilla garden that has sprung up on a formerly neglected corner in Halifax’s North End.

I have also, in the past, contributed to Spacing Montreal, and have linked the articles below:
