URBAN VACANCY


why vacant?


VACANCY_Budapest_Interim_District

Likely project development time frame

"Interim District" proposal is about creating neighbourhood strategy for the use of vacant spaces in the area of 7th district. It further explores the possibility of using other vacant spaces of Szervita ter and Skala Metro.

Phase 1 Period 0-3 month: development of the Incubator D7, project promotion, accumulation of the ideas, first networking events, launch of the support programme

Initial step of the proposal is creation of the 'Incubator D7' support centre where ideas for use of vacant spaces are born, tested and developed. The proposed uses will be based on local community needs and interests. Being situated in a vacant shop, in the heart of 7th district, the 'Incubator D7' will be visible and easily accessible to all.

Phase 1 Period 0-3 month: development of the Incubator D7, project promotion, accumulation of the ideas, first networking events, launch of the support programme

B: Network D7

Integral part of the network is development of support kits for network members. Physical, visual and information kits will be developed for use by all participating members when needed. This will help new members to kickstart their ideas and will reduce the costs of organising and running activities.

Initial step of the proposal is creation of the 'Incubator D7' support centre where ideas for use of vacant spaces are born, tested and developed. The proposed uses will be based on local community needs and interests. Being situated in a vacant shop, in the heart of 7th district, the 'Incubator D7' will be visible and easily accessible to all.

This diagram/map is showing possible network of activities in empty properties. The network emanates from the Incubator D7 as a space where ideas are born (according to local peoples' needs and interests), developed and turned into reality through available support. Incubator D7 also serves as a central hub of D7 Network, a testing as well as an event space.

MAP

Physical kits will be shared amongst network members. Members can use individual kits either to run activities or to improve / develop their spaces. Kits can be used separately or together depending on activity. For example an art gallery opening might need both event kit & temporary bar kit. Kits will be portable and easy-to-use.

An integral part of the overall strategy is a series of events taking place in the public realm of the neighbourhood (streets, squares, parks) organised by the network, not only for promotional but also community building/supporting purposes.
