Design Challenge: Most urban spaces are created with clear intentions. Yet, some are not. They are the results of the indifferences in planning, design, and urban economy. These spaces are neither purposed nor defined. We can find these types of spaces in every corner of any city. In most cases, these spaces are neglected. Now, we would like you to find these types of spaces that are under utilized, and interpret them in a new way to bring out its full potentials.

The subject of the proposal, “reinterpreting urban space” lies in providing citizens a new perspective toward urban spaces by redefining the relationship between these indeterminate spaces and the city by re-invigorating them with new possibilities.
