Urban tinkering: An alternative approach to planning

The world is in need of new ways of thinking and approaches to achieve sustainability.

Tinkering – adjusting and moulding of existing landscapes through small scale “urban experiments” that can result in dramatic shifts in the way the landscape works as a system – where designing for multifunctionality provides innovative solutions to the problems of sustainable development in the context of rapidly changing conditions.

This approach can both guide the design of new, and redesign of existing, urban
structures, as well as promote innovative integration of grey, green and blue infrastructure.
