Meanwhile as a solution

We have developed an expertise in temporary or ‘meanwhile’ development. This is the interim use of land or building for which the long-term plan is uncertain. These types of projects have a lifespan that would normally be considered far too short for investment. We believe, however, that we have an evolving model that can unlock both the short and long-term potential of under-utilised sites. We believe that the push effect of standard development models is exacerbating the gentrification of successful cities around the world. We propose the PULL effect as a possible solution, where PULL stands for Populate, Unlock, Learn, and Legacy.
