Abstract

Abstract

Traditionally public squares were the spatially fixed and clearly defined physical locus of public activity and meeting. As a result of the Mobilities Turn, in which types, modes, frequencies, velocities and quantities of movement in contemporary urban areas and urban lives have increased, the fixed nature and clear definition of public space, the publics it ‘contains’ and the functions it performs have been profoundly changed.

This paper will explore these changes and how they have affected the design and the experience of public space.
