A place of mixed people with different characteristics, needs desires and aspirations, nevertheless creates a common but ever-changing life.
The commonality of this life has long been the subject of annotation by urban planners, sociologists, architects and artists.
In Greece, social life focuses on public places with commercial uses or private ones.
“An older word that has re-emerged and is becoming more and more popular … has different meanings and meanings. What we share: the common multitude of the material world and the effects of social production.”
Negri & Hardt
We are in need of common places as a transformation of the private and public space we know today. The revival of emphasis on the “loss” of urban common characteristics compared to the past reflects the seemingly profound implications of the emphasis on privacy separated from the public.
The concept of commons includes three elements: common resources, community and social relations.
Therefore, urban commons are these places (intangible and material) formed by the people themselves, promote various social activities and encourage the extension of private life in the public space.
