From parklets to bike lanes, gardens to pop-up stores, temporary urban interventions have emerged as a powerful source of innovation, experimentation and rapid implementation. But while temporary approaches can fast-track things into existence, their day of reckoning must eventually come. Can they put down roots and live on, or should they pass gracefully away? How should advocates and policymakers contend with these living experiments? Join innovators Kit Hodge of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, Michael Yarne of the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development and John Bela of Rebar to discuss the evolution and future of temporary urbanism.
