9780692248058: Tent City Urbanism: From Self-Organized Camps to Tiny House Villages

Tent City Urbanism explores the intersection of the "tiny house movement" and tent cities organized by the homeless to present an accessible and sustainable housing paradigm that can improve the quality of life for everyone.
While tent cities tend to evoke either sympathy or disgust, the author finds such informal settlements actually address many of the shortfalls of more formal responses to homelessness. Tent cities often exemplify self-management, direct democracy, tolerance, mutual aid, and resourceful strategies for living with less. This book presents a vision for how cities can constructively build upon these positive dynamics rather than continuing to seek evictions and pay the high costs of policing homelessness.

The tiny house village provides a path forward to transitional and affordable housing within the grasp of a local community. It offers a bottom-up approach to the provision of shelter that is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable--both for the individual and the city. The concept was first pioneered by Portland's Dignity Village, and has since been re-imagined by Eugene's Opportunity Village and Olympia's Quixote Village. Now this innovative model has emerged from the Northwest to inspire projects in Madison, Austin, and Ithaca, and is being pursued by advocacy groups throughout the country.

Along with documenting and articulating the roots of this budding movement, the book provides a practical guide to help catalyze new and existing initiatives in other areas.

About the Author:

Andrew Heben is an urban planner, writer, and tiny house builder based in Eugene, Oregon. He has traveled throughout the U.S. to study over a dozen tent cities organized by the homeless, and spent time living at one in Ann Arbor, Michigan known as Camp Take Notice. This experience informed his 2011 award-winning thesis in urban planning at the University of Cincinnati. Heben has since helped co-found Opportunity Village Eugene (OVE), a non-profit organization that advocates for and builds self-managed tiny house villages. In 2013 he assisted in the planning, design, and building of Opportunity Village, which now houses more than 30 otherwise homeless individuals and couples at a time. This work, combined with his previous research, inspired Heben's new book, Tent City Urbanism: From Self-Organized Camps to Tiny House Villages.

Review:

"A very pragmatic approach that was inspirational to getting people in our community to see what could and should be done." 
-- Kitty Piercy, mayor of Eugene, OR

"Every town, city, suburb in America needs a place for our citizens to retreat to when the American Dream hasn't exactly worked out for them. This can happen to any of us. Imagine the least that would honor you as a human being until you're ready to plug in again. A place of refuge, to dry out, to learn work skills, and to get the confidence you need to succeed. Andrew's village model and this book will help you learn how to do just that." -- Charles Durrett, author of Creating Cohousing

"The vision to create a living place of vitality, safety, and human scale is an indomitable urge that likely resides in all people. That said, Opportunity Village, supported mightily by Andrew Heben, has taken the lead in demonstrating the remarkable inspiring effects and healing power of such a vision in action. The idea that a group of people can undertake democratic processes in such a way that they repair themselves and create a sustainable expression of place will be of interest to everyone." -- Mark Lakeman, co-founder of City Repair

"A very pragmatic approach that was inspirational to getting people in our community to see what could and should be done."- Kitty Piercy, mayor of Eugene, OR "Every town, city, suburb in America needs a place for our citizens to retreat to when the American Dream hasn't exactly worked out for them.
