ASPECT Studios：购物中心不仅是购物中心，而且越来越成为社区中心。Highpoint Pop Up Park提供了说话、坐着、观看和玩耍的新方式。位于市中心最繁忙的入口之一的退化的公共广场对游客几乎没有提供什么。小广场现场混凝土开裂，食物、饮料和香烟的污渍，以及缺乏座位，这些都只是通往中心的一条走道。pop up park设计的目的是快速、廉价地安装上易于使用的材料，如窗帘布层和标准的墙柱框架系统。此外，座椅元素，其层压板固定和颜色，有助于一个独特的身份空间。
ASPECT Studios：Shopping centres aren’t only for shopping, but more and more they are becoming community hubs. Highpoint Pop Up Park offers new ways of talking, sitting, watching and playing. Located at one of the busiest entry to the centre, the degraded public plaza had offered very little to visitors.The small plazawith its cracked insitu concrete, stains from food, drinks and cigarettes and lack of seating contributed very little other than a walkway into the centre. The pop up park was designed to be quickly and cheaply installed with easily accessible materials such as form ply and a standard stud wall framing system. In addition, the seating elements, with their laminate fixings and colours, contribute to a unique identity for the space.
There are new custom raised platforms with soft synthetic turf framed by custom seating details. These seating elements or sloped terraces face a central and safe play space with moveable play objects. The whole design is integrated seamlessly with current site functions.The overlapping programs creates new connections between groups in the community. Children are now running, hiding, following and jumping right next to a group of youths just hanging out and being cool.
pop up park演示了如何将这些空间重新配置为更多。这是战略性的城市化，一个由中心管理驱动的项目。设计得很好，并且持续时间比最初计划的要长。
The pop up park is a demonstration of how these spaces can be reconfigured to become much more. This is strategic urbanism, a project driven from Centre Management. Designed well and to last, longer than initially planned.
