'Tactical Urbanism: Short-Term Action for Long-Term Change'

In Norway there keeps coming up temporary measures to help the cityscape. In Oslo projects like "Carfree citylife", Salt, Vippa and Future Farmers in Bjørvika will help stimulate the use of the city infrastructure and create usable spaces. For these things to have the highest impact possible it is important that they help contribute to to culture of the city and how the people use it. Mike Lydon is the father of pop-up urbanism and is passionate about how these temporary solutions can result in permanent change and development of the urban city life.
