In this lecture, Luisa Bravo, president of City Space Architecture, advocates for that public space in cities is a common good, meant to be open, inclusive and democratic — a right for everybody.

The lecture addresses the following issues:

  • top-down approach vs bottom-up practices in the contemporary age
  • architecture/architects and urban design/designers as open-minded tools/actors
  • the relevance of public space in the urban discourse
  • the players involved in the public space process
  • lessons learned and what we still need to know/do
  • what everyone can do everyday for public space
