It's the dialogue of the pieces, not the pieces themselves that creates aesthetic, function success. It is important that each public space is accessible, people engage themselves in a variety of activities there, the space is comfortable and safe, and that it is a sociable place.

Great chart. I have to believe that safety is a huge factor. If you are not comfortable to bring your kids or bike to an area then you won't use it no matter how many attactions it has.

Thanks-- interesting enough, this chart was pasted as graffiti on the wall of one of the streets we walked through while being here in Barcelona. So I took it as a sign & ran with it.

    Hi! I'm studying the reclamation of Barcelona's derelict industrial sites as public open spaces. 

    Study    question

    Barcelona addresses post-industrial sites within its urban landscapes. How have they transformed or redefined these sites as new spaces & to what effect ?
