City Squares: Eighteen Writers on the Spirit and Significance of Squares Around the World
What is a public square, and why is it essential to urban life?
A city square is the heart of a city, a democratic crossroads that people pass through, rather than a retreat—a place that invites people to stop, look, exhale, and find one another.
