Advancing tactical urbanism – How placemaking and cosmopolitics generate social sustainability enhancing tactical urbanism
Placemaking is a collaborative approach to redesigning spaces into places that improve their community value and are often conducted by large entities and organizations making individual level practices nearly impossible. Tactical urbanism tackles the problem of slow change with bottom up processes that allow for fast changes to urban environments that can be conducted at an individual level.
Concepts from cosmopolitics are tied with placemaking principles to enhance and bring another element to tactical urbanism. The combination of these elements will aim to create care in relationships between humans and place. This project explores how placemaking principles and cosmopolitics advance tactical urbanism to create meaning and sustainability in spaces making them great places. Experimental interventions around Linnaeus University campus are used to put these concepts into practice.
