Discovering public space


While working on my graduation thesis I have set out on a quest for finding out what qualities a public space envelopes. What elements make up a public space?

traces of use, empty bottles, a can, and many cigarettes
a small ledge that functions as a place to smoke and have a coffee
next to a bench
next to a steep ramp, a place to lean and have a smoke
low stairs, but still a place to sit
remnants of a bbq
the cigarettes are always found next to an object, rain pipe, electronics cabinet, etc.
plants provide a small open patch with sand, making it suitable for use as an ashtray
