This book is dedicated to an initiative by architect (Recetas Urbanas) which has involved dozens of collectives to transform obsolete cargos into self-managed cultural spaces. What begins as a kind of guerrilla having the Spanish peninsula as its battleground leads to an international cooperation network.
