About Us

Why are fashion brands moving their flagship stores into shipping containers? Why are offices starting to look like bars? And why do architects want to design a house on legs these days?

At a time when people and information move faster than ever before, cities themselves are now in a permanent state of change. They are no longer the product of master plans and fixed frame-works, but are increasingly being shaped by citizen-led initiatives and temporary projects by people hoping to make their cities better.

Golfstromen is an Amsterdam-based urban design and communications agency that launched Pop-Up City in 2008, out of a fascination for the ways in which citizens, organizations, enterprises, and governments were coming up with creative and flexible solutions to deal with this new urban dynamic.
