The city of the public space: drop dead?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Public space; Public Sphere; Conflict; Planetary Urbanization; Pandemic.

The concept of public space has a long history and very different meanings. In particular, the conceptions of political theory and philosophy differ from those heralded by urban planners and sociologists, fueling some confusion about the ‘public space’ applications. In this contribution, this complexity is put under tension with the type of planetary urbanization we were used to before the arrival of the covid19. We will end with a reflection on the possible effects that the pandemic has on the city and on its public space.
