The winter issue of MAS Context on the topic of public space is out! It`s an extended version of 170 pages and its content is for free (!). Go and get substantial information and documentary photographs by a wide range of experts like Luis Chillida, Andrew Clark, Lick Fai Eric Ho, Matthew Hoffman, Iker Gil, KARO* with Architektur + Netzwerk, labRAD, Edward Emile Richardson, Rob Smith, Snohetta, Francine Stock and David Yoon. Go public!
Go public. From the successful spaces designed to be enjoyed by the community to the tools citizens have to influence those areas, common or not. From new design methods that create extraordinary opportunities to decisions that challenge our basic public structures. And all this through documentation, investigation and idealization of what can be done; because we believe in the power of PUBLIC. Yes, that is you. [press release]
The Team around Iker Gil (MAS Studio/editor in chief of MAS Context) invited me to put into 140 digits, which public space I like the most. I´d like to say THANKS at this point – and here we go:
I favour the Karmelitermarktet in Vienna`s 2nd district for the vivid and lively atmosphere it developed in an unpretentious neighbourhood.
