research project at dinâmia'cet-Iscte

Considering urban design as a manipulation of a complex web of nodes and connections with simultaneous interactions leads us to the systemic thinking that can be applied to the design of public spaces. The development of design pattern systems and urban toolboxes can be identified by different authors who seek to systematize urban elements from systemic thinking, considering the new urban challenges. The objective of my investigation, therefore, is to propose a new systematization of design patterns for small public spaces based on three main classes: behaviors, processes, and elements.
