SS-332 Public Space

3 Credits

This course is designed to introduce students, artists, and designers to the key political, social, design and theoretical considerations informing public space. Our focus will be on a broad range of public spaces, from the material to the digital, including publicly owned parks, streets, and sidewalks, privately owned or managed public spaces, temporary spaces at the interstices of the urban, and crowd sourced social media spaces. We will focus on the production of public space including considerations of who constitutes” the public” and how struggles over rights, representation and design, are central to democratic politics.
