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.
