Description: Collective space in architecture and urbanism operates and evolves through many creative strategies of interactions, intrusions, and exchange of social boundaries. Speakers will examine and discuss how patterns of such collective actions can be extracted from various physical models of marketplaces, public streets, housings, and other structures or infrastructures both traditional and modern. Further discussion will examine innovative governance models and active collective processes that balance out the rules and social agreements that collectively contribute to reshaping the city for the public good.
