Active Publicspace

“How to” guide Implementing technology towards Active public space

The “How to” Guide is a collection of best practices. More than 70 projects activating public space all over the world are compiled in this Guide. 

A voyage through nations and experiences  that can design a network of places and actors activating best practices in public spaces.
This How to Guide seeks to contribute to shaping of an overall vision of how architectural actions are able to activate public space, the effects of these practices on citizens’ life and how to discover, in an easy way, the best selected practices in this field all over the world.
It consists in the creation of a series of high-quality learning materials addressing how to transform public space into smart public space, contributing to bridge the knowledge gap between smart urban technologies and architects, urban-planners and creatives working on public spaces. Its objective is to literally be a Guide throughout this panorama. At the end of the same, you can find an Active Glossary with all the information regarding offices, artists and firms participating (credits,collaboration, Media, Web pages).-
