At the end of the year, Pop-Up City will organize an exclusive double city trip to London and Amsterdam to investigate the opportunities and challenges of the Future of Urban Living.
Costs of living space in cities are on the rise. For the first time in centuries, the average size of a person’s living space is decreasing. This trend is leading to new lifestyles and smaller forms of housing. Micro-living and co-living are the newest developments in urban living. How is this affecting the city? Is it a temporary or lasting trend? And in what way can we realize attractive forms of micro-living in the Netherlands?
In October and November, Pop-Up City will organize an exclusive double city trip to London and Amsterdam, to elaborately discover the chances and pitfalls of micro-living and co-living. During this three-day city trip (two days in London, one in Amsterdam) we will visit a wide range of exemplar cases. We will speak to initiators, designers, residents, experts, developers and community managers; exchange knowledge; and discuss current issues, trends and challenges. To wrap up the day in Amsterdam we will share our findings during an expert meeting in collaboration with Zoku.
The city trip is part of our international research project on the Future of Urban Living, that Pop-Up City has been conducting over the past year. Joining us is a group of people with a background in property development, government and policy, construction, and design.
The trip will take off on Monday morning October 9th in Amsterdam, where we visit multiple co-living concepts. During the evening, we host a meet up in which we discuss the future of urban living. On November 30th, we depart from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, flying to London. In the evening of Friday December 1st we will return to Amsterdam, wrapping up our trip.
During the trip, we will visit the following projects and exemplar cases in London and Amsterdam. We will be able to see theses interesting places with our own eyes and get to know the people behind it. Check them out here.
