EUROPEAN URBANITY SUSTAINABLE CITY AND NEW PUBLIC SPACES Urbanity can be defined as a shared way of experiencing the city and its functions but also as a way of envisaging city space in order to create the conditions for people to come together in communal places: public space. But where does public space start and where does it stop? Can neighbourhood and local spaces be seen as part of the public domain? And also, can we use the term public space for the new communal spaces - such as shopping malls, stations and airports? Designing urbanity-creating projects that link in with the status of public space means rethinking it in the context of sustainable urban development, i.e. development that does not damage the environment but incorporates it into the process of change. It raises a few questions. Mobilities and diversity of travel How to deal with car use within the city and to encourage a diversity of travel methods in the public domain? Densities, morphology and open spaces Does preventing city sprawl consuming natural areas necessarily mean increasing the construction density and enhancing communal open spaces where nature is present in the city? Multifunctionality and intensity How to promote functional mix in order to reduce travel distances and facilitate intensity of collective spaces? Private space / public space Faced with the risk of the hegemony of private dimension to the detriment of communal space within the contemporary city, how to deal with the dynamic of investments around public domain?
