„Contemporary urban complexity in our cities clearly problematizes the notion of public space and begins to redefine the grammar and system of public spaces, where no universal vocabulary emerges. Complexity of the process that guarantees ’successful and inclusive‘ public spaces depends on a plethora of interconnected elements but often contradictory goals. What we therefore need to find is a bold, fresh vocabulary for interpreting and understanding the interrelated systems and urban and social processes that shape our places. The ultimate goal is a move toward an emerging understanding of the ambience of place and the spatial (and other) forces that form it.“
