The design of Tactics. Critical Practices Transforming Public Spaces.
|Author||Francesca Gotti; Jacopo Leveratto; Cristina F. Colombo eds.|
This publication explores the significance of encounters between people and culture in public spaces, points of encounter where they may take place, and counterpoints which may be contained, silenced, or expressed within them. It presents the process and initial outcomes of a three-year investigation into the design of tactical interventions, actions, strategies, and other experiences for revitalising and enhancing the quality of marginal and neglected public spaces in today’s European cities. Public spaces are where many of the contests and negotiations over culture and integration are taking place, whether through participatory activities, activism, or the appropriation in and of these spaces.
