Notes from the Temporary City: Hackney Wick and Fish Island, 2014–2015

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 & profit from it.
