ABSTRACT

This study is an attempt to discover new possibility of public space in contemporary cities. The new modern public space is very complicated and diverse to be viewed only as a traditional interpretation of the public domain and publicity. It is necessary to contain the conditions and values of reality that are changed and interpreted more flexibly and positively beyond the function of the public space, which should be secured with ‘community’ and ‘publicness’ which have been emphasized as classically important values. First, the new possibilities of public space can be found in the reinterpretation of the boundaries of public and private sphere. Second, the autonomy and subjectivity of individuals in the use of the public space is being strengthened. Lately, it is changed the public values of private space. The effort to capture the real conditions and changes of the public space has practical implications to discover the public spaces at various levels and to lay the foundations for flexible urban planning and urban design.
