The Pop-Up City is a blog that explores the latest designs, trends and ideas that shape the city of the future. We strongly focus on new concepts, strategies and methods for a dynamic and flexible interpretation of contemporary urban life.
The Pop-Up City is curated by the creative directors of Golfstromen, along with an international team of reporters.
Today’s world cities deal with many problems related to rapidly increasing international societal, cultural, technologic and economic transformation processes.
More variableness in economic, political and cultural patterns leads to new expectations and renewals of dynamic capacities of the city. Our aim is to search for creative solutions regarding flexible urbanism and architecture. We are located in downtown Amsterdam. Feel free to contact us for all your invitations, proposals, questions and tips.

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.
I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.
