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.


The project included working with MA Architecture students from University of East London on a Construction Week project at The Limes, Walthamstow, using recycled wood from Momart Art Transport, Leyton.


The project will conclude in spring 2019.




Funded by Arts Council England and an Arts Development Grant from Waltham Forest Council.
