The Future of Public Space

This Future of Public Space research project and lecture series was a collaboration between Future Cape Town and The Urban Design Institute of of South Africa (UDISA).

The project aimed to promote discourse on the contemporary challenges of the public realm, against the backdrop of deepening inequality, fast urbanising cities and increasing socio-economic volatility.

It also sought to explore challenges of the future, where the changing nature of public-private ownership, aritificial intelligence, space travel, 3D printing and manufacturing present scenarios that few working in the field have ever grappled with.
