Pop Up City is an initiative of Kent State University’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, which promotes temporary events and installations that occupy vacant buildings and activate vacant land in ways that shine a spotlight on some of Cleveland’s spectacular but underutilized properties.
The staff of the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative extend our deepest gratitude to colleagues in Berlin, Halle, and Chicago who contributed their work to Urban Infill Volume 2: Pop Up City. In this volume, Philipp Oswalt, Klaus Overmeyer, and Philipp Misselwitz provide a valuable framework for understanding the origins and outcomes of temporary and unplanned uses. Jennifer Malloy looks at the temporary use phenomenon as a counterculture urban development strategy. Tore Dobberstein and Andreas Haase provide an illustrated travelogue of their adventures in Cleveland. Elke Knöβ and Wolfgang Grillitsch explore the Dolmusch X-Press a social and spatial experiment in the theatrics of temporary transit. And Terry Schwarz offers a Cleveland perspective on the role of temporary use in a transitional city.
