New Journal of Public Space, from City Space Architecture

csa_logoBologna, Italy

After one year of very intensive work, including international meetings, networking events and working papers, City Space Architecture is proud to announce a brand new journal, The Journal of Public Space, in collaboration with QUT – Queensland University of Technology, based in Australia, and in partnership with UN Habitat, the United Nations programme for human settlements, based in Kenya.

CSA President Luisa Bravo and Mirko Guaralda from QUT, the founding editors of the journal, are working with distinguished scholars all over the world to contribute to the discussion and expand current scholarship on public space.

The Journal of Public Space is the first, international, interdisciplinary, academic, open access journal entirely dedicated to public space. It is available in different languages and is open to embrace diversity, inconvenient dialogues and untold stories, from multidisciplinary fields and all countries, especially from those that usually do not have voice, overcoming the Western-oriented approach that is leading the current discourse.

As a proper public space, The Journal of Public Space is free, accessible and inclusive, providing a platform for emerging and consolidated researchers; it is intended to foster research, showcase best practices and inform discussion about the more and more important issues related to public spaces in our changing and evolving societies.

The first issue of the journal will be published in September and will include several full papers from our successful “Past Present and Future of Public Space” International Conference on Art, Architecture and Urban Design that took place in Bologna, on June 25-27, 2014.

CSA is launching The Journal of Public Space during a special event at the Venice Architecture Biennale, on September 23 (Friday) in the afternoon. The registration to attend the international symposium “Past Present and Future of ‪#‎PublicSpace‬” in ‪#‎Venice‬ is open!  It will take place on September 23, 2.30pm, at La Biennale di Venezia.
