Strictly speaking, libraries, government buildings, stations, shops and theatres are not public spaces, although we do in fact use them as if they were. A dynamic city has a number of such meeting places, out of doors as well as inside buildings. Richly illustrated with examples, Inside the City: The design and use of public interiors analyses the architecture of public interiors and the way in which they are taken up in the fabric of the city. Text in Dutch.
