Learning Objectives - Learn how 3 temporary public spaces were designed and installed over only a few months. - Gain insight into the unique opportunities and constraints of designing temporary park installations. - Examine the differences/similarities and the pros/cons of the case study pop-ups. - Understand the impact of temporary public space improvements for the communities of Philadelphia and Camden.
