Is temporary the new permanent?

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


Student Hub (3rd Floor), Abercrombie Building, Headington Campus


This talk will explore the concept of temporariness and its embodiment in pop-up ventures as a catalyst for regeneration. Focusing on their overlapping research interests in the subject, Aylin and Joanna will interrogate how their own disciplinary methodologies in architectural regeneration and organisation studies can be brought together to study and evaluate the physical, social and economic impacts of pop-ups to area based regeneration.
