Hostile architecture in the news in June 2014

Anti-homeless spikes made the news globally in June 2014. Mayors of London (UK) and Montreal (Canada) berated these design features and ordered their removal leading to further discussion in both social and traditional media. Dr. Tureli was invited to comment on the issue on CBC Radio Daybreak on 12 June 2014 (recording available here).


See some of the coverage in London and Montreal:

  • Alex Andreou, “Spikes keep the homeless away, pushing them further out of sight,” The Guardian (9 June 2014).
  • Ben Quinn, “Anti-homeless spikes are part of a wider phenomenon of ‘hostile architecture,'” The Guardian (13 June 2014).
  • “Outrage after Montreal store lays out spikes to deter homeless,” CTV News (10 June 2014)
  • “Anti-homeless spikes ‘unacceptable,’ Coderre says,” The Gazette  (10 June 2014)
