How to change waiting time in renovation sites into creative urban regeneration processes?

The T-Factor project experiments methods and tools for enhancing the cultural heritage of cities by promoting multi-stakeholder urban regeneration projects. Focusing on the time between the approval of the masterplan and the completion of the construction site, T-Factor shows how temporary uses can be extraordinary opportunities for cultural, social and economic activation, making urban regeneration more effective, sustainable and resilient. With a budget of 8,5 mln € co-financed by the European Commission Horizon 2020 program, the project includes 25 partners from 11 European countries as well as two partners from China and USA.

In the project LAMA leads the Transformation Agency that coordinates the city-making methodologies in the 6 pilot interventions in the cities of London, Bilbao, Amsterdam, Kaunas, Milan and Lisbon.
