What is Authentic Urban Public Space?——A Review of Western Public Space Theories and A Evaluation of the "Publicness" of Pubilc Space

In spite of the mass quantity of the construction of urban public space in recent years,the definition of public space remains ambiguous in both Chinese urban planning regulations and academic discourses.Through an in-depth investigation on the related western literatures,from the origin of the term "public space" to the major theories on the nature of public space,this paper stresses that the essential value of urban public space lies in its significant role in people's social and political lives.It suggests that the nature of public space can be only understood or evaluated from a multidisciplinary and dynamic perspective,which will help reveal the subtle and significant connection between built environment and the social-political aspects.
