Human Cities

Today more than half of the world’s population lives in cities, and many studies predict that the trend will continue to grow in the coming decades, so it seems that for a number of reasons, more than at any other time, urban identity will become increasingly significant in the 21st century. Under these circumstances, taking a creative look at the definition of life in the city in general and specifically at our most common asset – public space – seems both natural and necessary. In fact, the definition of public space appears to be one of the major issues today for pleasant living and collective welfare in cities; consequently the question of outfitting this space and enabling its usage by means of “forms” and “objects” – e.g. urban furnishings, equipment, durable or short-term urban art, interactive and participative events – is of capital importance.  Human Cities Festival 2012 Reclaiming Public Space
