A TOWN SQUARE
A square has to be a place full of life, with clearly proposed uses, but which also includes a planned open space for purposes that are not quite as concrete and that arise spontaneously, shaped by the lives of its inhabitants.
A square must have well-established and defined boundaries, so that the empty area within its limits acquires the status of a high-quality public space.
