Made by the people for the people

Myself and Will Waterhouse (Fizzy Roof Designer) were asked to do a talk at Hackney City farm on our cob building and Fizzy Bottle Project, for the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens. The building was about involving as many people in the local community as possible, along with being built fron re-used materials to demonstrate what you can do with urban waste and having a beautiful, educational and functional space to use on a daily basis.  To prepare for the talk we had to go through many  photographs from the start of the project to now. I thought it might be nice to share a few of the best photos with you...
