A Community Experience: Towards a New Public Realm

An informal discussion which looks at the role of public space in today's society

As cities grow at an unprecedented pace, public and shared spaces become more important than ever in our lives. So why aren’t new spaces created as frequently as new buildings? Or is it up to us to create, rather than re-define, our own space in the city? Why aren’t all of our shared spaces regarded with the same respect as our public parks? Is it time to start thinking of advertising billboards and the walls of the city as having a role beyond consumerism. Could they be considered as shared surfaces for the public’s use?

Join Urbis Creative Director, Scott Burnham, celebrated engineer and urban thinker Martin Stockley and invited guests as they explore radical differences of public space, and ways in which we can form new relationships with the existing spaces which surround us.
