Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman, with their firm ZUS, propose a radically new way of making a city: permanent temporality. This strategy is formed around an urban reality of values, material and people; a philosophy based on to the past and orientated towards the future.
City of Permanent Temporality is a manual for urban design that links temporary interventions to long-term thinking.Taking as its examples the internationally famous Luchtsingel and Schieblock projects, this book describes the impressive process of 15 years of work in the urban laboratory that is Rotterdam.
