This week as end of year tables begin, the unmissable event of the week thankfully falls on a Friday with the book launch and presentation of A Burglar’s Guide to the City by Geoff Manaugh being held at the AA Bookshop at 6.30pm. Scanning the urban landscape through the eyes of someone staging a heist, the book reveals loopholes in the architecture of buildings, surveillance systems and urban blocks to alter how we see and design the city.
Also this week is the opening of the exhibition Stories from Ostrava – Industry to Culture on Thursday in the AA Gallery. The exhibition consists of a film based on research and interviews carried out by AA students Veronika Janovcova and Timothy O’Hare, and a series of photographs by Viktor Kolár that document Ostrava past and present.
