Shared Spaces – the future of public space
Urbanisation means that Swiss cities are growing rapidly. In order to manage the urban sprawl, the revised Spatial Planning Act of 2014 stipulates that cities be densified – with the result that public spaces are becoming ever more rare. In the future, more and more people will have to share less and less public space. How will the urban environment look as a result? The GDI ‘Shared Spaces’ study aims to answer this question.
