zweiundzwanzig° / Book - Systematically getting lost


iF concept design award 2012

iF concept design award 2012

Getting lost is one of the primal fears of the human race. The fear of losing control makes us blind to the possibilities that could result from being disoriented. This book is a travel guide that teaches readers how to get lost by choice – but always with the option of finding their way back without using devices like maps or navigation systems. Divided into a theoretical and a practical part, the book teaches readers how to interpret the urban environment like a boy scout would interpret the forest. Way-finding strategies are combined with on-site practice to explore the diversity of a city in a new way.
