New Public Spaces Ideas “Glossary Workshop” // Batuhan Akkaya

In this workshop we will try to enhance our glossary of ideas that shape new public spaces. As Idea makers we will try to seek the new concepts and trends while we discuss about the future of public spaces.

The workshop will have three sections, “framing, seeking, evaluating”

Framing: What we talk about when we are discussing about new public space idea ? Actually new public spaces are generally consist of everyday public spaces so why do we call them new?

Seeking: What are transformative new concepts for new public spaces? Idea makers will try to create a concept pool from the outcomes of the dialogues.

Evaluating: Idea makers will discuss the boondoggles; do new concepts and trends are capable to overcome the challenges and risks.
