Transformation, Nostalgia, and Illusion in Public Life and Public Place

  • Michael Brill
Part of the Human Behavior and Environment book series (HUBE, volume 10)

Abstract

When this chapter was first requested, it surfaced a set of assumptions I then held about public life and public place. These assumptions probably came from my lifelong experience as a big-city dweller and intense city user, from being an architect, and from the teaching of architecture and urban design.
