Live stream of a panel discussion organized by Milan-based studio untitled architecture as part of Triennale di Milano's summer public program. TOPOTEK 1, Openfabric and Project for Public Spaces, three leading firms in the world of public spaces, will address the issues of the post-pandemic cities and share their views on how to approach them.
Titled PIANO TERRA (it. Ground floor), the conversation will cover the theme of public furniture: a new concept of urban furniture associated with the pandemic transition. The working hypothesis “overturns” the traditional vertical limit between public and private space, considering every space on the ground floor public, and observing it as part of an ideal “room-city”, extended over the entire urban territory.
