REopening of a city
We live in cities with inhumane voids. Spaces that used to inhabit vivid life now stand in gloomy silence. Empty retail stores, dark corners and offices that were left to their fate–they all demand a change in how we use and live in urban areas.
So what is needed for creating a more desirable city? This book doesn’t have the answers, and it is not going to give you a detailed recipe of correct urban planning. It is rather an insert to stimulate and encourage further dialogue when we consider and design the future. 33 inspiring and creative humans have given their own personal thoughts on the future of our cities and this book is the collection of their voices. You will also find 33 brief ideas of what empty spaces could be turned into for a generous and inviting city to thrive. REopening of a city is a fluid and heartening compilation of what a city could provide and what extraordinary shapes it might take.
