Richard Brown is a resident of Hackney Wick & Fish Island (HWFI), he is training to become an architect and has been actively involved in setting up self build live-work units in the area. He published a survey on the self build live-work movement in HWFI and has started a campaign on affordable and sustainable work spaces. As part of Rurban-Wick Richard guided a walk visiting some of the self build live-work units documented in his report, allowing an insight view in how they exist and operate while discussing ideas for a more sustainable self build live-work neighbourhood in HWFI.
