Collection by URBAN ACTION


Guerrilla gardening. Pavement-to-parks. Open streets. These are all urban interventions of a sort – quick, often temporary, cheap projects that aim to make a small part of a city more lively or enjoyable. These types of projects have grown in popularity in recent years, and they even have a new name: tactical urbanism, as in tactics used to improve the urban environment. These tactics tend to be replicable across cities, and in certain instances have become worldwide phenomena.

Benches­Collective Turns Streets Into A Giant Outdoor Café

Every first Sunday of the month, the BankjesCollectief (BenchesCollective) turns the streets of Amsterdam into the 'largest' outdoor café in the world. The owners of the benches decide what they offer and the visitors determine the value afterwards. Of course, the offerings can be food and drinks, but also activities like salsa classes, knitting workshops, and (clothing) swap sessions.

Here is a great example of a street turned into a pedestrian friendly area.kmpotant to acknowledge that not every resident owns a car, and also that experience as a pedestrian is more important than the experience inside of a car.

Originally a shared cow pasture until overgrazing led to a real-life example...
