Sibling director Dr Timothy Moore bunkered down during COVID to complete his PhD at the University of Melbourne, which investigated temporary projects within longer-term urban development. He traversed Amsterdam, Athens, Christchurch and Melbourne to evaluate how temporary architecture contributes experimentation, innovation and place-making to large-scale urban development projects, or how the pop-up has a legacy after it pops-down. This research has contributed to Sibling’s work in temporary-use, adaptive re-use and urban design, including the temporary ateliers at Beulah and Over Obelisk at the Vic Market. He has also written widely on the topic, including on The Conversation.
