Public spaces form the basis of a city for everyone. How do we ensure everyone feels welcome in their daily environment? Which designs stimulate recognition, surprise, and mutual connection? An evening with architects and designers about the importance of innovative spatial policy, the creation of vibrant public places and accessible locations with a connecting function. With a focus on creating architectural designs, like schools and libraries, which celebrate diversity.
