The community phase of the project is concerned with catalysing a network of temporary occupations through a series of multiple user cultural projects.  The community hall project is inserted into the fabric of the city to infill a gap site close to Tour et Taxi.  The site was selected to create a density of projects around the hub whilst also demonstrating temporary construction methods on a external derelict site.  The community projects are established with diverse programmes occupying the same space – this ‘cross programming’ is a device to increase diversity, increase social awareness and encourage cultural exchange.  The objective of this phase of the Urban Set Aside policy is to make the strategy visible to the wider population of the test area so that more strategic planning projects can be established.
