What is the function of cities?
My work experience reveals a series of answers with over a decade of innovative and creative gestures; rethinking retail as a place of refuge, pop-up markets as spatial justice, public art as foresight strategy, civic engagement as cultural resilience, vacant spaces as business incubators, and backyards transformed into habitat labs for climate action.
As we head into a period of economic uncertainty, what does designing for prosperity look like? During the last downturn our response in the Bay Area as creatives included Spontaneous Interventions, Tactical Urbanism, Guerrilla Planning, and Urban Prototyes to test new solutions to urban challenges. Today we can apply this same strategy, with little pin pricks of innovation, as we test, adapt, or retool urban infrastructure to meet the challenges of climate resilience.
