We connect brands and organizations with a broad audience of international urban tastemakers and innovators. Our editors make sure that your story will be shared with our 100K+ readers in such a way that it generates attention. Over the last years we’ve worked with a wide variety of clients including Hewlett Packard, the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, Philips, and Helsinki World Design Capital.
Consulting & Lectures
Since 2008, The Pop-Up City has been reporting about what ideas and strategies that make a change in urbanism, design and marketing. Our global urban trend forecasts have received international praise from thought-leaders such as Richard Florida. Our lectures, curatorial work, consultancy work, research and reports have inspired and helped brands and organizations like Smart, Sanoma and De Key to define what’s up next for them.
You also find our content outside The Pop-Up City, online and offline. We take care of the bi-weekly trendletters of urban think tank Deltametropool, we’re reporter at LABKULTUR and web editor at Archis/Volume. Books that we’ve co-edited and/or contributed to are Mokum: A Guide to Amsterdam, A Smart Guide to Utopia and The Spontaneous City.
