Gordon Douglas

The Help-Yourself City: Legitimacy and Inequality in DIY Urbanism

In The Help-Yourself City, Gordon Douglas looks closely at people who take urban planning into their own hands with homemade signs and benches, guerrilla bike lanes and more. Douglas explores the frustration, creativity, and technical expertise behind these interventions, but also the position of privilege from which they often come. The Help-Yourself City tells a street-level story of people's relationships to their urban surroundings and the individualization of democratic responsibility
