The Typology of New Public Sites organizes the invisible public spaces of our everyday environment into a system of sites, components and qualities, indexed and described through terms and definitions. The field guide not only represents a system of classification, but also a playful yet serious linguistic intervention into the discourse of architecture and planning. Through invented and appropriated language, this reference book / manifesto poetically challenges the authority of how public space is represented.
The Typology of New Public Sites was originally presented in conjunction with New Public Sites – Middle Branch Crossing during MICA’s M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition III in the spring of 2010.The Typology of New Public Sites pdf (15.4mb)
