The Help-Yourself City

Legitimacy and Inequality in DIY Urbanism

Gordon C.C. Douglas

  • Combines cultural and urban sociology with urban planning, policy, and design scholarship
  • Includes more than 100 interviews with do-it-yourself urban designers, planning and design professionals, and community members in 17 cities
  • Appraises the under-studied and widely-celebrated trend of DIY urbanism to highlight the implications for urban planning, community development, and how everyday people engage with urban policy and urban space itself
