      Since the onset of the "great recession" in 2008, San Francisco, like many
      American cities, has struggled through a period of economic decline and
      drastically reduced public resources. Fortunately for San Francisco, a
      city with a long history of entrepreneurship and social activism, citizens
      have displayed great wherewithal and ingenuity in the face of budgetary
      stalemates—resulting in an outpouring of innovative do-it-yourself
      projects ranging from activating stalled construction sites, to
      constructing temporary public plazas and parks at street intersections, to
      designing pop-up storefronts, to creating a national forest in the heart
      of the Tenderloin.

      DIY Urbanism provides a snapshot of this burgeoning and distinctively
      local movement, and explores the meeting grounds between the bottom-up
      approach of DIY urbanists and the traditional top-down planning process.
