A stellar example of urban design of public spaces for public life. Old factory walls frame the park and square, juxtaposing new and old. Bridges zig zag the interior to transcend the park from above, as waterfalls add an auditory feature. #pspl #gehl #urbics (at Parc del Clot)
Chris in Barcelona:
This heatmap shows the areas investigated on the ground to better understand the emissions people emit on social media about their relationship with places and features within spaces. Upcoming places of interest include the Jardins de Rubió i Lluch, Placa Reial, and the Encants Barcelona Market Hall. This is in addition to two of Gehl Architects’ selections for squares in their Public Space Public Life (PSPL) surveys: Placa del Sol and Parc del Clot.
The second photo from a field notes diary entry shows an attempt to make observations similar to those in Gehl Architects’ methodology book.
Chris at UN City:
Helped the UN City with the challenge of #placemaking on social media as a part of their workshop for their new headquarters that houses 8 UN agencies in a remote part of the harbor.
