Street Space - Redefining the analysis of streets as public spaces for their critical transformation

Lecturer in Architecture at QUB, Dr Agustina Martire, invites you to join a new reading group exploring streets as key elements of urban space. 

Streets are in essence public spaces and connect diverse areas of the city, weaving the urban fabric. How do we analyse street space? How do we communicate this analysis? Can we use a language that different disciplines will understand? How can we use these methods to change/improve street spaces?

This reading group will explore different approaches to the analysis of streets as public spaces. We invite students, academics and professionals of architecture, planning, anthropology, sociology, history, psychology, film, media, arts and any other discipline interested in the analysis of public space.

The reading group will take place in 15 Chlorine Gardens. The next three meetings will be on October 7, November 4 and December 2, from 12:30-4pm. 

If you are interested in participating, please send an email to A.Martire@qub.ac.uk
