In The Invention of Public Space: Designing for Inclusion in Lindsay’s New York, Mariana Mogilevich details a watershed moment when designers, government administrators, and residents sought to remake New York City in the image of a diverse, free, and democratic society. Bringing together psychology, politics, and design, her new book considers a broad array of projects in open spaces to affirm the value of city life in a moment of “urban crisis,” and reveals the emergence of a concept of public space that remains today a powerful, if unrealized, aspiration.
