These posters document design against humanity in NYC. Original photos, taken in NYC. Hostile architecture is an intentional design strategy that uses elements of the built environment to guide or restrict behaviour in urban space. Hostile architecture takes many forms, from the overt and aggressive, like metal bars on park benches and anti-homeless spikes, to the seemingly innocuous, such as benches mounted just a little too high, to make lingering uncomfortable. These are all ways of saying “don’t make yourself at home”.
