False February: Public Space












(Above: conceptual drawings and schematics for a proposed Beltline property by Architect Mary Clare DeReull)

Deconform is gearing up for a February release under a new publication name: False Magazine. The intention is to open up a dialog about the use of public space and the impact of development schemes on our way of life.

Do eminent domain laws really serve the public good? What constitutes a greater "blight on the community" - a neglected townhouse or the ugly subdivision that gets built on top of it? How can we think constructively about new construction?

More updates soon.
