There is an increasing need for a structure, display, enclosure, or interactive space that can be temporary, flexible, and adaptable for different people, uses, or times. This temporary architecture, sometimes referred to as "pop-up architecture," allows for great creativity and potential time and cost savings during the construction process. This webinar will look at some ways pop-up architecture has been developed, used, and admired around the world.
- Discover the history and motivation behind creating temporary architecture for habitable and non-habitable spaces.
- Explore the design challenges of innovative approaches to material usage, experimentation, and progressive design solutions.
- Recognize the positive environmental implications of temporary architecture, including dis-assembling, re-use, and recycling.
- Identify the ways pop-up architecture concepts are being integrated into permanent and semi-permanent structures in code compliant manners.
