From our project team “Urban Pop Up Housing Environments” Gaetano Bertino, Gloria Rose and Johannes Kisser, submitted a paper to the Journal “Springer” that got published in the special issue “Circular Economy and Sustainability”.
The paper presents the results obtained from questionnaire sessions with stakeholders, allowing insight on the international perception of temporary pop-up environments and, specifically, strengths and weaknesses of the Pop-Up scenarios realized within our project, as well as their possible applicability in the local contexts of the respondents.
It was observed that while the perceptions of what requirements temporary housing must fulfill in order to be sustainable are quite uniform among the experts, the identified barriers for implementation within the different international contexts differed greatly. The designs of these temporary housing scenarios, which rely heavily on local resources and systems, are strongly interwoven with the fabric and conditions of the city they were conceptualised for. While this serves to promote the sustainability of these solutions, it poses a particular challenge for the international transferability, requiring heavy adaptation for other contexts.
