Urban Infrastructures: Public Space

After our summer in Istanbul, you may be interested in this course for Fall!

PSDS 5508 – Urban Infrastructures: Public Space

This seminar aims at exploring generative capacity of public space as a dynamic, social and infrastructural system-in-action capable of enabling modes and types of spatial production that are critical, engaging and participatory. We will consider contemporary philosophical, theoretical, methodological, as well design issues related to public space and urban commons, with a specific emphasis on the ‘privately-owned-public-spaces’ in New York City. Through field visits, research, readings, discussions and films, the class will be engaged in the semester-long inquiry and research projects into the emergent modes of conceptualizing and producing sites of publicness in New York City.
