Tactical Urbanism: A Dialogue with Mike Lydon

February 27, 2019 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

The Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment presents a dialogue with Mike Lydon, Tactical Urbanism as Iterative City Building Through Community Engagement.
To remain competitive, cities must address challenges, and do so in an environment of increasingly complex regulations and constrained resources. In response to pressing urban issues under complex constraints, interim “quick build” interventions of experiment for the public realm has exploded as one of the most compelling development approaches.

Mike Lydon, principal of Street Plans, is a practitioner leading the stream with his publication “Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change” (Island Press, 2015). In this lecture, Mike will highlight some relevant projects and emerging trends from around the globe as well as community involvement for tactical execution of projects.
