The paper reports on a workshop conducted to revisit the temporary reuse of a few properties and outdoor spaces using temporary intervention strategies and tactics. Three buildings were studied: an office block, the ex Torre dei Modelli of Breda and the factory of the company Vetrobalsamo at Sesto San Giovanni. The workshop which was conducted on site inside a temporary reused space, generated design ideas for possible projects to be carried out and also more general considerations on the subject of temporary reuse as the difference between temporary status being ‘imposed’ and temporary status being ‘designed’ and on the subject of ‘reversibility’, ‘flexibility’ and ‘adjustment’. The projects drawn up by the working groups contemplated not only architecturally possible and economically sustainable solutions, but above all practically feasible uses and the possibility of appropriation by unsatisfied demand.
