Street Space Reading Group | December 2, 12:30pm

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

The Street Space reading group is holding its December meeting at 12:30 pm on Wednesday 2nd at the MAC in Belfast.



Streets are key elements of urban space; they 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.

This time, the group will be reading the following titles:

Stephen Brooke - Revisiting Southam Street: Class, Generation, Gender and Race in the Photography of Roger Mayne

and

Cliff Moughtin - The European City Street: Part 1: Paths and Places

All those interested in participating should send an email to Agustina Martire
