Product Description

Details

From concrete desert to green oasis, photo-journalist Carrie Hitchcock tells the story of The Yard, a community-led, self-build housing development in inner-city St Werburghs in Bristol. Carrie is one of the group of people who built their houses here and in The Yard she tells the story of how a piece of concrete-covered industrial land became a thriving community. More than simply a record of the project, the book aims to inspire and inform others who want to study or create similar developments themselves. It incorporates practical tips and resources, and provides case studies giving an insight into the person or family who created each house. The book explores ideas of community, self-determination and the creative potential of resistance.
