Description

Land Stocks are landscapes whose potential is deemed lost or worthless. This book seeks to reclaim the latent usefulness of these areas. It envisions the residual spaces, wastelands, and destitute buildings that exist within the complex urban tapestry as a resource rather than a detriment. Land Stocks are not created. They are a consequence of the post-crisis city. They express the weakness of the metropolitan growth model and the need to investigate other possible transformation strategies, such as recycling existing urban fabric in order to reduce waste, maximise productivity, and return land capital to the urban life-cycle. With a material focus, Landstocks highlights issues that will influence contemporary and future city design.
