The alleys of Tehran carry potentials to operate as public spaces, as opposed to passing areas; due to their spatial features and socio-cultural characteristic of their residents. It seems that transforming alleys from static, minor and neutral spaces to dynamic, interactive and livable places requires collaborative placemaking processes.
TUIC - on a recommendation by Mojdeh Kamali - defined FLIP project to examine bottom-up collaborative urban development models in order to enhance the spatial qualities of the alleys at Tehran.
In its initial phase, FLIP selected Jozi alley as a project site in Khan Sefid, Niavaran. Using Design Thinking and Tactical Urbanism as leading methods, FLIP defined, designed and implemented the changes in a one-day event, based on people’s viewpoints.
