Workshop in Bratislava, Slovakia

A space for freedom – a space for people

First of all the working group asked the question about the psychological effect of the public space, as well its (potential) users and their requirements. Other starting points were the context within the urban structure and the land use policy. It wasn’t a case of providing “solutions”, but of initiating a creative process with various workable models showing how viable they would be to construct as well as the consequences for the space and its surrounding area.
