CASE STUDY: From Pop-up to Permanent: Transforming Cities Through Interim Interventions

seeing

Interim interventions allow people to see their streets in a new light and can help to build political and community support for new street design possibilities in a quick and affordable way.

From Designing Cities 2017 Chicago, download this ‘Seeing is Believing’ Webinar presentation in pdf here by Skye Duncan, Director of Global Designing Cities Initiative. Here she speaks about lessons learned from GDCI interim interventions including how to engage local communities and move from project to program.

Michael Lydon, Principal of Street Plans Collaborative, also later shared his experience on the role of tactical urbanism in gathering public support for urban projects.

The Global Designing Cities Initiative is a program of NACTO, a New York-based, 501c3, non-profit organization. It’s mission is to inspire a shift toward safe, sustainable, and healthy cities through transforming our streets.
