Abstract:

This title re-maps public space in order to unveil contemporary spatial practices and to explore future possibilities. In the midst of historic migration and urbanisation, our limited public spaces are being contested and re-conceptualised in cities around the world with innovative experiments in some places and bloody battles in others. This book uses the case of sidewalks in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where a vibrant everyday urbanism takes place inflexible patterns that defy conventional conceptions of public space.
