Espaço Público

“(…) open spaces in cities are opportunities. Yes, they are opportunities for commercial investment,but they are also opportunities for the common good of the city (…) public spaces have power. It's not just the number of people using them, it's the even greater number of people who feel better about their city just knowing that they are there. Public space can change how you live in a city, how you feel about a city, whether you choose one city over another, and public space is one of the most important reasons why you stay in a city. I believe that a successful city is like a fabulous party. People stay because they are having a great time.
