Texts on Public Space

Uncategorized — Tor Lindstrand @ 19:46


In this first assignment you will do individual research, your task is to present a short text on what a contemporary or future public space could be. The over-arching idea is to produce an encyclopedia of ideas for a new public space. You are free to choose anything to study but make sure that the research is relevant to a contemporary architectural discourse. Since you have such diverse backgrounds one possible starting point could be some phenomena form your home countries or from your personal history. It is essential that you think in terms of concepts, so rather than the history about a famous square, it could be for instance the Impact of MTV on uses of public space. Try and address it in relation to classical architectural concepts such as program, function, scale, material, temporary, use, permanence, monument.
