The Journal of Public Space

February 7, 2017
By City Space Architecture

In 2015 City Space Architecture founded a brand new journal, The Journal of Public Space, in collaboration with QUT - Queensland University of Technology, based in Australia, and in partnership with UN Habitat, the United Nations Agency for Cities and Human Settlements.
Our President Luisa Bravo and Mirko Guaralda, our Honorary Member at QUT, are founding editors of the journal and they are working with a number of international distinguished scholars all over the world, whose aim is to contribute to the discussion and expand current scholarship on public space. 
The Journal of Public Space is the first, international, interdisciplinary, academic, open access journal entirely dedicated to public space. It 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.
As a proper public space, The Journal of Public Space is free, accessible and inclusive, providing a platform for emerging and consolidated researchers; it is intended to foster research, showcase best practices and inform discussion about the more and more important issues related to public spaces in our changing and evolving societies.
The first issue of the journal includes several full papers from our successful "Past Present and Future of Public Space" International Conference on Art, Architecture and Urban Design that took place in Bologna, on June 25-27, 2014. 
The Journal of Public Space was launched at the Habitat III conference, the United Nations conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, during a talk at the Urban Library, on Wednesday October 19, 5.00-5.45pm, Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana, Quito, Ecuador.
