HOW TO CREATE A RELEVANT PUBLIC SPACE
THIRD PLACES FOR ALL
Public spaces, also known as third places, keep our society vital and intact. Unfortunately, the public domain is becoming increasingly less public as it falls victim to the whims of commercial parties. Those whose wallets cannot afford to pay the required entrance fee or that branded cup of coffee are starting to be left behind. Inclusion and equality are keystones for creativity and innovation, which is why revitalizing third places such as cultural centers and libraries is an urgent mission. As creative guides, architecture and interior design are our weapons of choice, the book 3rd4ALL is our societal call to arm for reclaiming the public domain.
