    The street is the ultimate public space. While parks and plazas are mostly used according to weather conditions and time of the week, streets are those open spaces we all share, everyday. Intended as axes for multi-modal mobility, street scan be imagined and designed as ecological corridors, spaces that welcome encounter as much as conflict. Streets are the stages where we perform our daily life, where the exceptional mingle with the routine.

    Openfabric’s aim is to generate spaces where the city, society and nature come together, addressing spontaneity rather than imposing rigid design and planning solutions. The office in its first 4 years has been designing spaces and strategies where people and nature can ‘colonize’ the landscape freely, finding solutions to avoid over-design and over-regulation. Bringing back to the city wild nature and fostering non-formal uses of the public space can generate an array of unusual and transient activities resulting in new social and ecological patterns.
