Urban Hacktivist Fills French Streets With Creative Interventions [Pics]
Florian Rivière reimagines public space in Strasbourg by putting hurdles on the sidewalks and crafting back rests for benches.
Florian Rivière is an “urban hacktivist” who creates fun interactions with public spaces. His hacks aim to show the functionality of the landscape and encourage direct action from people.
Inspired by the hacker culture, he reinvests and diverts public space to allow citizens to reclaim their environment. His interventions, located between urban design “Do It Yourself” and upcycling (upgrading waste), have the particularity to be spontaneous and raw, exclusively made with objects found in the street, and always with humor.
