About temporary use on the URBACT website

Temporary use is a learning process of accommodating innovation and adapting needs and capacities to available resources. It offers benefits to owners and users, in terms of security, maintenance, anchor tenants and social vibe on the one side, and affordable rents and spaces on the other. And it can help shaping new forms of cooperation between public administrations, private property owners and citizen initiatives. This article, based on the authors’ work in the URBACT knowledge transfer program Temporary Use as a Tool for Urban Regeneration and other initiatives and research, looks at a few examples to explore the conditions and potentials of temporary use in regenerating European cities and giving communities better access to urban spaces. Our article on temporary use at the URBACT website.

New article in A10#64: Winemaker’s complex in Eger

The hills around the north-eastern Hungarian town of Eger are famous for their vineyards and wine production. Some of the nation’s favourite wines originate here, yet not all of the land is currently in use. Upon hearing of a long-abandoned parcel at the Érseki vineyard, winemaker Ferenc Csutorás grew curious about the unidentified grapevines he found there. Together with psychiatrist Imre Csernus and graphic designer Péter Mészáros, he harvested the grapes. The resulting wine surprised them all – it was one of the finest they had ever tasted. They decided to save the grapevines by relocating them to the neighbouring hill, and to share the wine with their visitors.

This process is related to the wider transformation of the city as a whole and the planning that shapes this development. This discussion will explore the benefits of participation for both planning and production of architecture as well that for for heritage conservation.

On June 19-20, Kaptar CoWorking and the Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre organize an interactive design charrette for young designers and graduates. The charrette aims to facilitate the intermediate use of abandoned retail spaces to be used as coworking spaces by small design interventions. The workshop accompanies Kaptar’s soon-to-be-released mobile app, enabling the use of vacant spaces while providing new workspace options for urban nomads.

Tussentijd Rotterdam (Meanwhile Rotterdam) is a temporary use agency based born from a cooperation between Stipo and ANNA Real Estate & Culture. Tussentijd works together with housing corporations, private owners and municipal departments to help the interim use of buildings in periods of expected vacancy. In Tussentijd’s work, temporary use is considered both as a short-term solution and a basic for long-term strategies. In her lecture on June 19, Tussentijd-member Willemijn de Boer will present the organisation’s work, methods, achievements and challenges. More about Tussentijd at http://www.tussentijdrotterdam.nl

Az esemény a Creatieve Stimuleringsfonds NL és a Norvég Civil Támogatási Alap támogatásával, a KAPTÁR közösségi iroda partnerségével jött létre.
Supported by the Creatieve Stimuleringsfonds NL and EEA Norway Grants, with the partnership of KAPTÁR Co-Working.
