Moving from tactics to strategy: city intervention practices and their strategic insights
Purpose – The paper is aimed to present the approach to the investigation of place development trajectory which ties up the bottom-up initiatives and the city strategic perspectives.
Design / approach – It is proposed to implement the ‘tactical urbanism’ activities and to up-scale their insights to tackle them with city strategy. The approach is aimed at local community activation as the preliminary stage of further involvement and gives new insights into ways of city representation. The case study is performed on the basis of the intervention that was implemented during the “Interactive Moscow” Summer School and the possible strategic insights are discussed.
Findings – The paper proposes the way of abandoned places development using intervention as a tool of community activation and draws the possible algorithm schematically, which needs further discussion.
Originality / value – The paper tests transferability of place management concept to centrally planned environment.
