REFILL stands for "reuse of vacant spaces as driving force for innovation on local level". The last years many cities experimented with the concept of ‘temporary use’ of abandoned and derelict spaces. It has been an important and inspiring source of innovation and change in cities, being a motor and incubator for new forms of urbanity.…
These days there is a strong belief among spatial professionals in a certain type of spatial intervention, often described using terms such as ‘bottom-up’, ‘tactical’, ‘guerilla’ or ‘pop-up’ urbanism. These interventions are modest in size, focus on one specific locality and are generally implemented by freelancing spatial practitioners, small companies or collectives, often given a bit of subsidy, but hardly ever structurally supported. This type of ‘urbanism’ is also often temporary, to some extent characterised by the flexible (re-)use of structures and materials and organised the DIY-way.
In 2014, Living Cities put forward the concept of a New Urban Practice: one that engages leaders across sectors to dramatically improve the lives of low-income people. Many individuals and institutions are already doing great work. We hope that through this concept, we can all see our work as part of something bigger.
In 2015, we began to focus on putting the New Urban Practice into action. We created, used, curated, and shared tools that can make it easier for people to work together, to harness lessons learned by others, and to identify gaps in practice. We went out into the world and talked to people about their work and the tools that they have been using. We hosted a Summit to bring people together to introduce and engage with those tools. We scanned social media and the blogosphere.
