Temporary ‘pop-up' interventions in urban open spaces

Quentin Stevens (Associate professor at School of Architecture and Design, RMIT University, Australia) 


Urban open spaces are being occupied by many novel temporary interventions, ranging from ‘pop-up’ buildings to ‘parklets’. Known under a range of labels ? ‘pop-up urbanism’, ‘insurgent urbanism’, ‘austerity urbanism’, ‘DIY urban design’ and ‘guerrilla urbanism’ - these often circumvent conventional urban planning approaches. This presentation explores this phenomenon’s varying forms, locations, drivers, development processes, and impacts and benefits. A detailed study of temporary artificial beaches installed on vacant city land throughout Germany examines their spatial distribution, their material content and design, and the wide range of actors involved in producing and managing them. Temporary interventions are argued to increase urban intensity, community engagement, creativity and adaptability, at minimal public expense. But they may also disrupt existing uses and users of open space, increase demand and conflict, and drive up costs. Are pop-ups necessarily in the public interest?
