Temporary Urban Design

May 2, 2012

The sharp review by David Lepeska on the Atlantic Cities about the new book by Peter Bishop Temporary City makes me think about the Public Design Festival, an initiative driven by the Esterni collective in Milan and abroad, since 1995.

It also makes me think about the Report about Future of Design in the Built Environment published by the same author in November 2011 for the Commission for Architecture and Built Environment (CABE). The new book deals with the hot topic of increasing role of transient phenomena shaping urban space also in its permanent features.  A good start to think about what is temporary and what is permanent in cities… definitely more than enough food for thoughts for today.
