Public Space

Public space is the background of our daily life and the framework of our professional research. Both the progressive disappearance of communities from the collective spaces of the city and contemporary society that is always changing in both form and needs, prompted us to start a research project on contemporary public space.

Mobility, flexibility, transiency and globalization are elements of the contemporary society that are reflected in a public space that no longer meets the real and immediate needs of the community.

Our goal is to respond to new social needs through experimentation in public space, we try to optimize the resources available and to create a synergy between different types of “urban waste”: waste materials, residual spaces and forgotten or uncommon uses. Public acts, minimum infrastructures, DIY workshops are the tools we use to intervene in reactivating common spaces.
