Simple tools and tactics are what's needed to revitalize a community.
People are at the center of our work. We give residents and cities the tools needed for change.
Tactical urbanism includes low-cost, temporary changes to the built environment, usually in cities, intended to improve local neighborhoods and city gathering places. Tactical urbanism is also commonly referred to as guerrilla urbanism, pop-up urbanism, city repair, or D.I.Y. urbanism. Other terms include planning-by-doing, urban acupuncture, and urban prototyping.
Tactical urbanism can be used to test multi-modal transportation options in right-of-ways, the conversion of parking space into public gathering space, the installation of public art on blank walls, etc. - the sky's the limit. The low-cost and temporary nature of tactical urbanism makes it extremely appealing to cities looking evolve without making major investments in infrastructure before being tested.
