The project calls for new models of privately owned public space in cities across the UK. It challenges the polarisation of private and public, as a tool to create divisions within society. Instead it asks how architects can work with the public to invent new frameworks to improve use, access, and ownership of public space. In the spirit of Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights, the British pavilion explores the diversity of privatised public space as a non-binary condition. The overarching question of the pavilion is: at a time when financial pressures are controlling the evolution of the city, how can we rethink what privatised public space could be?
