Description: 

To live our city means to expand the limits of our homes. To understand this concept we will study public spaces and the importance of their form and qualities to help us feel as one with the city. The course will focus on the characteristics of different public spaces and the activities that take place in them. Throughout the study in time of city urban development and its public spaces in both Europe and America we will distinguish the advantages of each. Barcelona will serve as case of study for the European perspective.
