Low cost design / Anarch etiquette

Daniele Pario Perra by his research project ‘low cost design’ documents … “the smart solutions created by anonymous designers to find a way to sort out everyday problems or needs. The two books published by Silvana present hundreds of examples of unconventional creativity: a re-use, or better, a modified and enlightened use not only of objects, but also of actions and projects that can change the use of the territory, thus revealing people’s innovative customs and great imagination.”

Another great project has been Perra´s urban fresco removal, more infos here.

Built an ark

“Kea Tawana built a wooden ark on city vacant land in Newark, New Jersey in 1981. Fed up with city neglect of the neighborhood since the 1967 riots, Tawana decided to create a massive structure – ninety feet wide and three stories high – using scavenged material. The ark served to provide hope and symbolize renewal. Unfortunately, the city decided to raze the structure, stating that its presence did not comply with code.” More here. Followed by Mark Bradford who has built an ark for New Orleans in LA after the hurricane ‘Katrina’.
