Eolved, rather than designed or planned, these derelict, abandoned, and marginal spaces or wildernesses are frequently overgrown with vegetation and host to a wide range of human activities. They include former industrial sites, landfill, allotments, cemeteries, woods, infrastructural corridors, vacant lots and a whole array of urban waste lands at a variety of different scales. Frequently maligned in the media, these landscapes have recently been re-evaluated and this collection combines these fresh perspectives in one volume. Includes around 100 colour images.
