The catalogue for the exhibition includes essays by international experts and case studies from architecture, sociology, art and urbanism for the redefinition of public spaces, such as Tempelhofer Feld in Berlin, Trafalgar Square in London, Campo de Cebada in Madrid and the Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York. Artistic interventions in public spaces that question the status quo and add new interpretations will also be shown, as well as the findings of an international workshop and 3D tools for public participation.
