Digital open space

Just a quick thought… In this age of social networking via portable smartdevices, It would be really interesting for architects and planners to explore how their development of open space can become a part of online social space.

Some ideas for you…

  • have lots of easily identifiable public art sculptures that can act as meeting spaces.
  • number the squares in the square so that people can find a square stand in it and tell their friends to meet them at that square. could be the basis of some rather interesting games too…
  • street furniture that can be tweeted to provide identifiable meeting places
Any others?
