Gaps of Uncertainty: Towards a tactical Architecture
Tactical architecture explores the potential of introducing a new temporary modular architectural system into our urban environments that is able to grow and evolve as we do.
As a society we are everchanging, this new tactical architecture explores the potential of introducing a temporary modular architectural system into our urban environments that is able to grow and evolve as we do. Forming a system that could reintroduce experimentation within our urban environment, offering low-cost fast acting interventions where the city needs them most, capable of continually changing to accommodate the needs of users and the city itself.
The city of Perth provides a suitable and realistic context in which to test the system, due to its ability to mirror the struggle of many small European cities: if it is successfully realised here then it could be implemented elsewhere. The city itself has an overabundance of gap sites and car parks that are primed for such an approach, each creating interesting and unique conditions that ask entirely different questions of this adaptive modular system. In turn each intervention would become an iterative process of continual reflection and refinement, transforming these sites into ‘gaps of uncertainty’.
