Pop-up housing as a meanwhile use: A case study approach to London's housing crisis
London is currently facing an urgent housing crisis with the need for more affordable housing. Due to economic hardships, interest in ‘pop-ups’ has increased as a temporary method of interim use. This dissertation explores ‘meanwhile use’ as temporary usage in empty sites and aims to analyse their use as a pop-up housing model. Furthermore, the dissertation will explore if pop-up housing can be part of a practical solution in the London context. The unique PLACE / Ladywell’s pop-up village in Lewisham, South East London, will be the focused study site. It provides an in-depth ethnographic case study approach of this phenomena. The best and worst practices of PLACE / Ladywell will be further utilised as lessons learned for academic and practitioner purposes. Additionally, PLACE / Ladywell’s impact on London’s policy and planning processes along with more permanent social housing iterations, will be explored. The main dissertation findings highlight the precision manufactured housing technologies for high-quality temporary accommodation for homeless families and the next steps for the growing pop-up phenomenon.
