e-publicspace.net – Public Space Encyclopedia
As part of a research project entitled UrbansSystems/Urban Models (USUM) that brings together Laboratories of ETHZ (Studio Basel), Università della Svizzera italiana, and EPFL, a specific research on public space is being undertaken by the lab. Chôros (http://choros.epfl.ch). This research confronts theory and empiricism and attempts to analyze the complexity of public spaces in cities. Is public space a universal concept?
