As part of the Royal College of Art Architecture & Design Interim Show, Thomas Pausz collaborated with Manor Garden Allotment Society plotholders to reconstruct their Community Shed using their memories and stories. The original shed formed the hub of the century-old Manor Garden Allotments by the River Lea on the border of Newham and Hackney. It was demolished in October 2007 together with the entire allotments and surrounding area, to make way for landscaping of the 2012 Olympic park.
