TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A PUBLIC SPACE!!!
Development occurs in a state of flux and we must learn to design and construct an urban environment that embraces continual transition. Temporary use is the opposite of the masterplan: it starts out from context and the current condition, not from a distant goal; it seeks to use what already exists rather than inventing everything anew; it is concerned with small places and brief spans of time as well as the conditions at various points in time. Temporary uses are symptoms of an alternative understanding to urban planning, rather than leaving development to government and the economy alone, they explore an appropriation of the city.* Temporary urban landscapes therefore offer a unique opportunity for design events of limited life to exist, injecting the urban environment with playfulness, imagining possible futures that are experiential and adaptive. The Landscape Urbanism 72 Hour Urban Action Melbourne challenges teams to participate in a game plan competition that involves designing and constructing a site in response to a brief within 72 hours.
