A project exploring self-built shacks and shelters across Waltham Forest, including the innovative use of found materials and often self taught building techniques. Lucy has been documenting these structures across the borough on allotments and in gardens, and the ways in which communities create spaces for social gatherings using recycled materials.
Linear Park: Plot Lines
Linear Park: Plot Lines is a collaboration between Lucy Harrison and Matter Architecture, commissioned by Waltham Forest Council as part of Making Places with additional funding from the Mayor of London.
The project traces the boundary lines of houses that were formerly on the site, using lines of lavender, and creating spaces between the lines for wild flowers or opportunities for community planting.
Lightboxes and Lettering
A major project focussing on the pre-digital era of printing in Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest and the experiences of people involved in the industry.
