    Jeff Curry announces candidacy for 188th district
    Will tremors from recent political seismic shifts on national, state and city levels be felt in Philadelphia's 188th district? Jeff Curry hopes so. He's quitting his job and, to a large degree, banking his first political campaign on it. Curry, a Democrat, entered the race for State Representative of the 188th District early this month.

Project for Public Spaces gave us a forum to discuss the path from installing Philadelphia's first Parklets to the nearly-complete Trolley Portal Gardens.

    Hack > Tinker > Analyze > Design: How Short-Term Placemaking Experiments Transformed Philadelphia's University City - Project for Public Spaces
    Editor's Note: United under the core principles of community vision, cost-effectiveness, collaboration, and citizen-led change, the approach that we call "Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper" goes by many names. "Action-planning," "guerrilla urbanism," "pop-up projects," "city repair," and "DIY urbanism" all have their followers, but perhaps none more so than "tactical urbanism," including the authors of this article.
