rethinking urban commons URBAN KITCHENS The fact that we have the internet today changes the type of things we are able to share. What was before something exclusive to a certain household can now be a shared item to people halfway across the globe. What would this mean if this set of sharing could be taken from private asset to public amenities? Could we bring sharing to an urban scale in the city? What if places like parks, street walks, unused spaces in the city could be act upon by the collective? The production needs space to take place, tools to craft, materials to shape and knowledge of things to produce it.

human scale items bed / lamps / books

architectural unit scale bedroom / living room / bathroom / house / villa / apartment

urban scale playground / open field / parks / bus stops / buildings / community ground

What then, would be the physical consequence of the city?
