After one year of intense production from the foundation of the editorial project until the publication of each book chapter, a wonderful book has now been released for you. It has been the result off a great collective effort led by Jieling and Francesco. Studio Pop wants to want to take this opportunity to thank them for joining this experimental design oeuvre.
The “Handbook of Research on Perception-Driven Approaches to Urban Assessment and Design” is a scholarly resource that assesses metropolitan development and its relation to the ecological and sustainability issues these areas face. Featuring coverage on a wide range of topics such as user-centered urban planning, perception of urban landscapes, and thermal comfort in urban contexts, this publication is geared toward professionals, practitioners, researchers, and students seeking relevant research on the effective planning of metropolitan areas and their relation to the ecological and sustainability issues that face such areas.
The contribution is located in Chapter 23 titled “Reactivating Urban Voids Through Sensory and Pop-Up Design: Changing Citizen Perceptions of Remaking With Waste”. It reflects on the implementation of pop-up architecture and sensory gardens made with waste reuse in brownfields. The selected experiment DOT TO DOT© (2017 onwards) investigates waste reuse as pop-up sensory reactivation of gap sites in Glasgow. Experiments explore constructive sensibilities embedded in material sensory by interlinking tangible place-making, sensory gardens, eco-design, and self-build solutions in public spaces. Trials apply the principles of temporariness, portability, and sensory of waste as a social value and material culture in cities.
