Inside a pop-up: remaking an empty lot with art and community engagement | Urban economy | Scoop.it

There has been a lot of buzz recently about pop-up urbanism.

I have yet to find a really clear definition of “pop-up urbanism,” but the projects are generally small, often temporary, ways to explore creative possibilities urban space.
