Subject of course

Short time action for long time change

In the context of a climate and health crises, temporary interventions to transform public spaces are gaining popularity, but also urgency. Cities around the world are implementing pop-up bike lanes and transforming car-oriented streets into open spaces for exercise, festivals, and local recreation. Short-term measures, also known as "Tactical Urbanism," that are commonly understood as quick, cheap, and simple to implement.

As part of the Design Strudio HARD AM LIMIT, Tactical Urbanism is used as a design and planning tool in the service of climate change adaptation. Joined action to reverse the current trend! To this end, temporary interventions are designed for the former schoolyard of the municipality of Hard, in Vorarlberg, which will be realized on site in a 10-day construction workshop. The impetus for a long-term sustainability transformation can be experienced first hand!
