The Intimate Metropolis – Part 9

Lecture date: 2003-11-01

The distinction between ‘public’ and ‘private’ is entrenched in our value judgement’s, our systems of legislation, and the structuring of our physical surroundings. It has direct consequences for the way we lead our lives. Yet the ways in which we distinguish between public and private, and to what effect, are issues less frequently discussed. This conference focuses on the manifestations in architectural and urban form and other means of representation of the multiple interactions between private and public, urban and domestic.
