Beyond the Pop-Up: Rethinking Interim Use
The Creativeworks London Creative Voucher Revaluing Temporary Urban Use project brought together specialists in art, architecture and urban research and led to a public debate and knowledge cogeneration to inform working practices.
Andreas Lang, director of Public Works, said: “We benefited from the working methodologies brought to the collaboration by the researchers, which have informed our practice. The collaboration has allowed us to reassess the rigour with which we reflect and interrogate our work.”
Working with researchers from Queen Mary University of London, the project has focused on researching the values mobilised by practitioners, local authorities and users around selected projects in Hackney Wick, London. Through public events it has contributed critical insights into the potential impacts and is creating a publication addressed at practitioners, public- and private-sector organisations and policymakers.
