Description/Abstract

The project I’m proposing will analyze the effect of temporary environments on deteriorated cities that have been damaged environmentally and economically. While attempts have been made to motivate cities through the use of vacant and public space, “research on temporary urbanism is still in its infancy”. I claim that temporary architecture, if ideally placed, can alleviate the strain placed on communities from environmental and economic disasters. I will demonstrate that temporal space is the needed structure for human cultural permanence and preservation.
