NEW CALL FOR PAPERS TECHNE | 19

"The public space. Design, Construction, Management"

Deadline: 

Abstract submission: May 17th, 2019
Paper submission: September 20th, 2019

As urban areas represent complex systems, their transformations are ruled by different shapes, ways and times, depending on the different international contexts in which they are located. The peculiarity of the European cities is due to their construction through the stratification of identities, shapes, systems and uses, that they have found representation in the structure of the public space, and in its tangible and intangible characters.

In contrast to what happens in vastly extended world megalopolises, the public space in the European cities is still an important social collector. Infact, in its articulated configurations - street, plaza, garden, urban park, etc.

- it becomes the bearer of multiple dimensions: cultural and semiological, fruitive and perceptual, environmental and eco-systemic, architectural and material. Public space expresses the desires and contradictions of the communities that live it which contribute to its definition. Therefore, the public space is the extraordinary synthesis between the past and the present, the setting for individual and collective life, for the shared perception of identities and meaning, and, at the same time, it is the place for confrontation and conflict. It is a rest area as well as a passing space in which fluxes of people, goods and pieces of information meet. The public space can be a space for singularity and excellence, but at the same time the scene of decay, neglect and anomie.

These articulated values define the public space as a cross-cutting issue of high relevance for the academic research, for critical investigations as well as for new design strategies.
