This is a view of the St Hilda's area of the town of Middlesbrough in north east England.
Here's American artist Fritz Haeg in a recent article suggesting a way to disrupt urban experience:
What if we turned over entire suburban streets to migrant farm workers who would remove all the lawns on one street and all the families would agree to it - and it would be the Eggplant Street. You'd have this really diverse series of crops in all these front yards and the farmers would tend them, grow them, and all the families would get free produce, and the farmers would be employed, and they could all sell food too because you'd grow more food than the families could eat by far.
I'm taking Haeg out of context. And St Hilda's is hardly a suburb.
But what about combining the two and proposing a productive edible purpose for spaces in front of people's houses across the developed world?
