This master thesis investigates temporary uses in urban regeneration as a sustainable approach to current challenges in urban planning. Recently there is a rise of interest in placemaking movement as well as the D.I.Y mentality from bottom-up level. Therefore, temporary uses emerge as a normal phase in urban development, in the changing paradigm of urban planning and the counter-culture demands from the residents. This thesis consists of 4 parts, theoretical background, the analysis of chosen site Tammela, design at multi scales and conclusion. The methodology is the interplay between theoretical study and empirical observations to grasp urban life in its totality. In Theory part, I explore current challenges in cities, the placemaking movement and the theoretical background for place-making approach. On that ground, the phenomenological approach will reveals the inter-related dimensions of the chosen site Tammela. In Analysis and Design parts, I analyse and propose situations in Tammela. Design output is process-approached, because design is not three, but four dimensional. It consists of the phasing strategies, planning for the temporal as well as the physical.
