Reclaiming Public Space in Prishtina, Kosovo

How might design and architecture facilitate public participation and reclamation of public spaces? 

Two interventions for Manifesta 14 Prishtina Urban Vision, designed by DUSP's Carlo Ratti, explores a new methodology of 'participatory urbanism' which reimagines the relationship between citizens, design, and public spaces within a city.

Manifesta was founded in the early 1990s to rethink the relation between culture and civic society and to drive positive social change through contemporary culture in response to, and in close dialogue with, the social sphere of the Host City and its communities. Manifesta 14 is being held in Prishtina, Kosovo between July 22 and October 30, 2022 and seeks to support the citizens of Kosovo in their ambition to reclaim public space and to rewrite the future of their capital as an open-minded metropolis in the Balkans and in Europe through the development of a new cultural institution.
