Abstract / Description of output

In this chapter, Jekaterina Balicka, Joanna Tamar Storie, Friedrich Kuhlmann, Anna Wilczynska and Simon Bell deal with the smallest end of the scale, that of small interventions under the concept of “urban acupuncture”. It starts with some theory and definitions and examples of urban acupuncture/tactical urbanism from other fields (permanent and temporary) of urban design and then leads to the application of the concept in blue spaces. The selected projects are evaluated and compared with the others against the set of criteria already defined in Chapter 10.
