A GUIDE TO THE DIRTY SOUTHAATLANTA. Benjamin Flowers. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2016. 176 pp. ISBN 9781908967770 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: Drawing on the format of the urban guidebook, A Guide to the Dirty South -- Atlanta generates a new discourse about the architecture of the American South. By guiding readers on a tour of Atlanta, this project seeks to reclaim a regional identity for cities otherwise deemed to be a "backwoods" by the East and West Coasts. Borrowing from the hip hop industry and recognising the rivalry between the two coasts, A Guide to the Dirty South -- Atlanta redirects our attention to a 'third coast'. Steeped in geography, historical events, typology, storytelling, and popular culture, trajectories through the city that the guide takes are idiosyncratic but urge the discipline of architecture toward a long overdue reading of Dirty South regionalism. Part tour guide, part architectural manual, the publication also features oral histories in a set of interviews with prominent architects, theorists, chefs, community leaders, and hip hop artists, from Architectural Historian Mario Carpo to hip-hop group Goodie Mob. Authored by Jennifer Bonner, the TVSDesign Distinguised Studio Critic at Georgia Tech, A Guide to the Dirty South -- Atlanta takes the reader on a tour of "Rap City", "Pop up Surface Lots", "Architecture of Quarantine" and a "Geography of Smells".
