Pop-Up Infrastructure

RAW was part of a multi-disciplinary research team (called Urban Priorities), who studied affordable space available to community organisations in Toronto’s inner suburbs. The study puts forth a useful definition of Pop-Up Infrastructure, one characterized by buildings, structures and spaces that are flexible, mobile, modular, quickly deployed and that can respond to changing needs. The study proposes an infrastructure network comprised of four Building Model types that can help contribute to sustainable community economic and social development.
