Temporalities through time and space

Monica Le

Location: Migratory movement through Pike, Pine and Stewart Street

My study of micro-urban spaces paid attention to temporal phenomena that occurred within Downtown Seattle. Micro-urbanism, as I observed, were natural, moving events that were caused by direct or indirect interaction between two or more people. These temporal phenomena are bound by time and space. They are as complex as our body systems, and as simple as breathing. Some spaces were multifunctional, flexible and versatile, and others faced limitations caused by time, place, and the individual’s purpose.

In one way or another, these phenomena were always moving, they were non-static. The location of an individual and their purpose was planned and unplanned at the same time. Micro-urban phenomena were forming and dissipating at the same time. They were joyous in the way they formed, yet some were saddening and unfortunate remedies that were responsive to the way spaces are designed today.

Micro Urbanism

The term “micro-urbanism” describes small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a wide variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. It also involves ways to reinterpret the urban landscape. As a class project, the purpose for creating this Guide is to bring attention to aspects of our everyday environment that are important but often neglected parts of the urban experiences.
