Open space in cities: inventing a new esthetic.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


In urban open space people's activities are recreational, not productive. If users of open space are to develop esthetic images their activities should be independent, creative, educational and cooperative: that is, they should involve appropriation. These activities require an incomplete landscape that has not been designed in every detail and in which nature is allowed to develop unhindered wherever possible. -C.A.Middleton
