Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a hugely inspiring read." Property Week

"The Temporary City is a welcome addition to the literature on planning and regeneration – whilst written independently of the recent Mary Portas review of Britain’s high streets, the book deals, from a different direction, with many similar issues affecting our cities. Coming from authors with a practical grounding in the issues of design, planning and delivery it is a particularly valuable and informed contribution to the debate on the future of our cities." - NewStart Magazine

 "The Temporary City's...analytical framework offers a clever review of the logic behind a more responsive approach to urban planning, conceived not as a guidebook but as a proposal to understand this phenomenon, to look into its drivers and find reasons to show how this can be more than hype and become a relevant instrument in the future."Ciudades a Escala Humana

"The Temporary City is a decent and thorough-full document that combines inspiring examples with interesting academic reflections."The Pop-Up City

"Anyone wishing to capture some Olympic spirit in their projects would do well to begin with this book." Juliet Bidgood, Urban Design, Autumn 2012, Issue 124

 "The Temporary City is a smart glossy book packed with bright images and sharp ideas […] [It] will have a presence and impact enduring well beyond that of some of the activities it describes."Stewart Williams, School of Geography and Environmental Studies, University of Tasmania, Australia, in the Australian Planner
