This paper analyses an initiative of tactical and experimental urbanism based on temporary interventions in the town of Vif, in the Grenoble-Alpes Metropole, in the 2017-2020 period. It is based on public information from the metropolitan guide for public spaces and roads, alongside primary research information obtained via semi-structured interviews with the project manager, in order to unpack the institutional complexities and the professionals’ experiences. This research describes and analyses the operations of the initiative and then assesses the key-drivers behind its operations. Furthermore, it has been identified that a combination of explorational and financial tools supporting citizen-led, temporary and incremental urbanism is a key-factor to the success of the initiative. This research also illustrates that the use of temporary interventions and the professional skills provided by motivated agents are also key to the efficient use of limited resources and for the implementation of urban transformations even with limited budgets.
