Public Space in the Age of Global Warming


Although a very influential climate-change-denier recently assumed power in the USA, all knowledgeable sources agree that the planet has entered a new geological phase, defined by Paul Crutzen as the Anthropocene.
After two centuries of intense human-produced gases released into the atmosphere, the climate is incrementally warming up, freak storms intensifying, and either excess water or lack of it threatens major urban areas.
... ...
When considering contemporary public space, the issues addressed by Jane Jacobs (The Death and Life of Great American Cities, 1961), William H. Whyte (The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces, 1980) and Jan Gehl (Public Spaces, Public Life, 1996), mostly involved crime, apathy, and motor traffic.
... ...
Adherence to the theory of social triangulation—a program with at least three different functions creating pretexts to cross public space—will probably remain a good idea for the near future, even if one has to get their feet wet in doing so, or even more likely collide with someone concentrating on their cell phone messages.
... ...
The prevalence of cell phones in 21st-century life introduces another inexorable factor pecking at the future of public space that may have even greater repercussions than climate change. Virtualism seems to be racing faster than the rising tides to cover the spaces where people congregate.
... ...
universal connection is exerting evolutionary consequences on humanity. The digital invasion does not necessarily exclude people from public space, but rather subjects them to despatialization, whether they are in public or not.
... ...
Will public space in the partially submerged urban environment of the future be possible? The often cited prediction that 70% of the planet’s population will be urban by 2050 does not seem to take into account this hydraulic imbalance. Venice, where the water has risen 28 centimeters in less than a century and which experiences regular inundations, resorts to a model of amphibious adaptation.

Public Buildings - Urban Social Infrastructure


In its essence, the city has always been a meeting place. In the past century, however, new technologies and a general trend towards privatization have contributed to changing this meeting function from a necessity to a choice. Activities that previously took place in public spaces now increasingly take place in (semi-) private spaces. As the use of public spaces becomes optional, their quality and attraction become correspondingly more important. How can public buildings contribute to the city’s function as a meeting place, making it into a place where people choose to spend their time? An overview of recent projects demonstrates how public buildings are generating activity by offering a mix of recreational programs, by creating public interiors that invite use, and by making connections with their context. In these ways, public buildings act as anchors of the urban social infrastructure. written by Isabel Potworowski
