Tactical Urbanism

There is a new publication available through the CNU website (cnu.org) that talks about tactical urbanism, which can be described as an interactive process to design and create quick and effective urban interventions.  We are seeing a trend in this area through events ranging from creating mini-parks in parking spaces, to doing temporary street closures in San Francisco, allowing short-term public spaces. These interventions have been described as a laboratory for experimentation in urban settings.
