PSSS Public presentation | 12th December

The public presentation of PSSS – Public Space’s Service System research project will take place in CIUL – Centro de Informação Urbana de Lisboa, on the next 12th December.

The project aims to develop the concept of public space as an urban system, interacting with other systems as infrastructure or landscape, and assessed by its service to the city and city-users (differentiating itself from conventional concepts of greater subjectivity – “quality”, “normativity”, “suitability”) and offering a new and interdisciplinary perspective of urban value, through public space.

We will also discuss the problems, diversity, continuities and opportunities of public spaces’ systems, based on some examples and experiences of team partners (Instituto Superior Técnico e a Área Metropolitana de Lisboa; Universidade do Porto e o Noroeste português; Universidade de Barcelona e Barcelona). The session aims to include other perspectives and participants in the project, setting a stakeholder consultation panel (makers, designers, managers/developer and several users of public space) that will follow up the ongoing research.
