The public space is par excellence the place of coexistence between inhabitants of a city, spaces that determine the life quality of individuals and therefore a society. That's why we have
the responsibility for claiming and creating places to facilitate civic participation and social interaction. Given the city is increasingly fragmented conceding spaces to the car over pedestrians, allocating spaces as transfer places instead of meeting places
