Summer semester 2012: RESEARCH LABORATORY TEMPORARY USEcase study 3
"Temporary uses, informal uses, developments of uses: We have many terms, only the one term I don't like to use anymore, and that's temporary use." Philippe Cabane (nt / areal, Basel), sociologist and urban planner
Makeshift or precursor? Since already a few years the phenomenon of intermediate and pioneer uses is in vogue and has turned into an obvious tool of urban planning. The main focus of this seminar is the approach to case studies and the research of various parameters, including the illustration of different positions of stakeholders, the work of the now numerous agencies of temporary uses, the tools and methods for an implementation and the development process.
This teaching unit is target at master students of Architecture, Urban Design, Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture.
