    Architects and planners are experimenting with temporary venues

    designed to be quickly deployed and assembled to host temporary

    events like performances and films. These flash experiences connect

    with an ever changing audience, while highlighting locally sourced

    content and bringing cultural enrichment into peoples lives.

    POP-UP CULTURE

    Debido a que algunas ciudades no pueden tener acceso inmediato a los fondos disponibles o bien en el espacio para apoyar la infraestructura cultural permanente dentro de los entornos pblicos, los arquitectos y los planificadores estn imaginando escenarios flexibles y rpidamente desplegables diseados para acoger eventos temporales de actuaciones para el cine. Estas son las experiencias flash de conectar con un pblico en constante cambio, adems de destacar el contenido de origen local y la inyeccin de disfrute en da a da la gente.

    The Moveable Movie Theater is a portable movie theater that is

    designed to be transported on a single truck. The theaters rectangular

    structure is composed of several sections, each layer housed within

    another, much like a nesting doll. When in use, the accordion-like

    layers are simply pulled out into a functional, multi-level theater.

    Created by Japanese designer Yusuke Yamamoto, the current design

    is able to fit approximately 30 people. The design is also lined with

    bookshelves to double as a moveable library. Yamamoto has said that

    he hopes his design will bring smiles to the faces of those currently

    living in the tsunami-ravaged Tohoku region of Japan.

    To keep pace with the changing face of downtown areas as they

    transition from understated business and commerce centers by

    day into lively areas for social and cultural engagements by night,

    developers are designing infrastructure that can adapt to meet

    an evolving set of needs. These flexible solutions accommodate a

    range of potential uses, transforming any environment into a multi-

    use destination that attracts a mix of demographics.

    ELASTIC ENVIRONMENTS

    Para mantener el ritmo con el rostro cambiante de los centros urbanos en la transicin desde negocio discreto y centros de comercio del da a da a las animadas zonas de compromisos sociales y culturales por la noche, los desarrolladores estn diseando una infraestructura que puede adaptarse para satisfacer en conjunto la evolucin de las necesidades. Estas soluciones flexibles dan cabida a una serie de casos de uso, ya que pueden transformar cualquier ambiente en un destino de uso mltiple, que atrae a una mezcla de demografa.

    11 11 is a multipurpose, premium parking garage in Miami Beach, Florida

    that doubles as a venue for weddings, wine tastings, yoga classes and

    more. Developed by art collector, Robert Wennett, and the architects

    of Londons Tate Modern and the Beijing 2008 Olympic Stadium,

    Herzog & de Meuron, the oversized loft-looking building features

    extraordinarily high ceilings, mixed retail and parking services and

    venue rental space that, thanks to the absence of exterior walls, offers

    event guests sweeping views of the city. The project showcases the

    potential for creating civic spaces through mixed-use environments.

    As a way to accommodate an increasing influx of urban residents,

    architects and planners are experimenting with construction

    techniques that allow for the rapid assembly of housing and other

    structures, often onto the footprints of existing buildings. These

    modular, prefab designs can be used as standalone dwellings or

    stacked together to create multi-unit buildings that can be adapted

    for a variety of uses. Whether created in pieces or, in some cases,

    pre-assembled units, the on-demand nature of this style of architecture

    is changing the pace at which areas can be developed and expanding

    available real estate, while reducing associated labor and costs.

    SNAP-ONHOUSING

    Para acomodar el creciente influjo de personas hacia zonas urbanas arquitectos y planificadores urbanos estn experimentado con tcnicas constructivas que les ayuden a ensamblar edificios fcilmente, as como la fabricacin de mdulos que puedan aadirse a la propia estructura del edificio. Estos diseos modulares prefabricados pueden usarse para crear edificios independientes o multi unitarios que se pueden adaptar para diversos usos. La naturaleza on demand de este estilo de arquitectura con mdulos prefabricados est acelerando la velocidad en que reas pueden ser desarrolladas y est ayudando a expandir el terreno construible a la vez que se reducen los costes de mano de obra y produccin.

    The MuReRe housing concept adds prefabricated units on top of

    existing structures in order to enhance and expand a citys built

    environment. Created by Argentine architect Adamo Faiden, the

    prefabricated concept features steel framed structures that are

    relatively light, fast to deploy, and adaptable to the underlying

    building. Once installed, the units can improve the buildings existing

    infrastructure by collecting rainwater or by incorporating solar-

    panels. The concept utilizes the flat rooftop architecture predominant

    in most Argentine cities as a basis for its design, but its modular

    offering is scalable worldwide.

    As a larger percentage of the population chooses to reside in

    cities, a greater emphasis has been placed on the importance

    of space. As a result, there has been a shift towards living

    spaces that are designed to take up a smaller footprint without

    sacrificing on functionality or comfort. These creative solutions

    rely on multipurpose furniture, adaptive interior environments

    and the efficient use of resources to accommodate a range of

    living styles and needs.

    Dado que un nmero elevado del porcentaje de la poblacin reside en las ciudades, ha habido un mayor nfasis en la importancia del espacio. C
