The Design Lab is thrilled to present City Space Architecture and The Journal of Public Space, a guest seminar being delivered by one of our international visiting academics, Dr. Luisa Bravo on Monday 21 May at 5.30pm.
City Space Architecture (CSA) is a non-profit organisation based in Bologna, Italy, with a mission to studying, making, spreading and sharing public space culture, through an interdisciplinary approach, involving art and architecture. In 2015 CSA founded with the Queensland University of Technology and in partnership with UN-Habitat, the United Nations Human Settlements Programme, The Journal of Public Space, the first, international, interdisciplinary, academic, open access journal entirely dedicated to public space. The journal speaks different languages and is open to embrace diversity, inconvenient dialogues and untold stories, from multidisciplinary fields and all countries, especially from those that usually do not have voice, overcoming the Western-oriented approach that is leading the current discourse.
Join Luisa as she discusses the genesis of her collaboration with QUT born of her scholarly remit to achieving a comprehensive knowledge in the use of digital tools able to combine top-down policies and programs of public administrations with bottom-up needs and aspirations of communities, in order to define a space of interaction and sharing for the co-creation of more liveable and equitable urban futures.
