Architecture | Urban, Community and Regional Planning
"This new typology will serve a great social significance
in any city it is placed in. Its ability to gather and withhold a
large number of people is its fundamental importance. Today’s
society has lost its interactivity. Through digital technologies,
more and more of us are glued to smartphones, laptops and
tablets. If this trend continues without any intervention, it will
result in us living “along together.” The public forum was the first
feature of any and all forms of “civitas” for thousands of years.
We are responsible for bringing this urban feature back to our
contemporary cities before it is too late."
