NOTES FROM THE TEMPORARY CITY: Hackney Wick and Fish Island 2014-2015 is based on Ferreri and Lang’s collaborative research into the logic and values of temporary use in the context of post-Olympic redevelopment in East London and gentrification.
“Notes from the Temporary City takes you on a tour of a neighbourhood on the cusp of change. It provides a complex picture of the dynamics reshaping contemporary London, from the pressure of market forces to new structures of governance and the ingenuity of its residents. Ferreri and Lang’s Hackney Wick has the power of synecdoche – it speaks of a wider metropolitan condition where temporary uses are entangled in the desire to both break from capitalist urbanisation and profit from it. Rather than a catalogue of good practices, this book provides something much more compelling and necessary for the analysis of temporary use – a trajectory of disagreements, deviations and paths not taken.” Isaac Marrero-Guillamón.
The book has been designed by Marcos Villalba and Christopher Lawson from Villalba Lawson and is distributed worldwide by Anagram Books.
