Smaller changes can lead to something big. That’s the idea behind tactical urbanism.
Often called “pop-up” or “guerilla” infrastructure, tactical urbanism allows cities (and sanctioned, or sometimes unsanctioned, parties) to experiment, and get projects implemented fast, with immediate results for mobility and safety. By using mostly temporary materials, tactical interventions are low-risk: if it doesn’t work, just take it down.
In this session, learn which materials to pick for your city’s next intervention, and hear how tactical urbanism techniques have helped build the political will and imagination for bolder, more permanent changes.
