Can San Diego Seed A Neighborhood With Pop-Up Cargotecture?

Can San Diego Seed A Neighborhood With Pop-Up Cargotecture? | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

With plenty of vacant land and blocks of underdeveloped warehouses, the East Village district of downtown San Diego has the makings of the next great neighborhood. Situated between the Gaslamp quarter and Golden Hill, the East Village is bursting with location but dwindling on population. Lately, though, the neighborhood has been showing signs of growth. 

To spark pedestrian street life in this formerly industrial part of town, the partners at the collaborative Design TEMPO have launched a Kickstarter campaign to transform a vacant city-owned lot into a free-for-all public space featuring shipping-container retail, a beer garden, food trucks, a dog run, a movie screen, movable furniture, and green space. Dubbed RAD LAB—for Research Architecture and Development Laboratory—the project takes after Envelope A+D's popular Proxy development in San Francisco's Hayes Valley (and, to a lesser extent, London's shipping-container mall, Boxpark Shoreditch).

This is where things should head next: Take all of that data, map it, connect the dots between public health, land use, economics, education, crime and housing. And portray those patterns – and the inequality they often reveal – down to the neighborhood level.


Los Angeles has recently done just this, rolling out a web tool as part of its Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles that maps a tremendous number of metrics about life in the region, at both the city and neighborhood scales. Just a sampling of the dozens of metrics, via the portal from the L.A. Department of City Planning, the L.A. County Department of Public Health and The California Endowment:
