Public Space? Lost and Found, MIT Press

Public Space? Lost and Found, a collection of essays, projects, and interviews on the shape and status of public space-making in art and architecture today, produced by ACT and distributed by MIT Press.

The concept of what is or is not a“public space,”and what should be done with it, has been on the minds of architects, designers, and artists for centuries. Public Space? Lost and Found considers the role of aesthetic practices within construction, identification, and the critique of public spaces. This book documents a number of recent projects with accompanying essays and texts from theorists and historians alike that open up discussions on ecological catastrophes, underrepresented communities, and ultimately the effects of digital media and the internet on public space.
