Stop complaining about Cleveland! Fix it yourself! Can't be done - maybe later - how about now? Get to it - we'll help!
We extend our deepest gratitude to colleagues in Berlin, Halle, and Chicago who contributed their work to Urban Infill Volume 2: Pop Up City. In this volume, Phillipp Oswalt, Klaus Overmeyer, and Philipp Misselwtiz provide a valuable framework for understanding the origins and outcomes of temporary and unplanned uses. Jennifer Malloy looks at the temporary use phenomenon as a counter culture urban design strategy. Tore Dobberstein and Andreas Haase provide an illustrated travelogue of their adventures in Cleveland. Elke Knop and Wolfgang Grillitsch explore the Colmusch X-Press - a social and spatial experiment in the theatrics of temporary transit. And I offer a Cleveland perspective on the role of temporary use in a transitional city.
We also thank the hundreds of friends and supporters who continue to provide their land, buildings, time, ideas, knowledge, and influence to the wispy but heartfelt efforts of Pop Up City. The Civic Innovation Lab, the Sears-Swetland Foundation, the George Gund Foundation, and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts provided generous support for the Pop Up City initiative and the publication of this book
