The Life of Place: Spaces, Places and Narratives
Editor: Davide Geneletti, Alias Abdullah & Norzailawati Mohd Noor
Publisher: IIUM Press
The book is a collection of selected case studies predominantly in Malaysia and an international case study in New Zealand that examines people’s experiences in public spaces. The public spaces gathered in this book include street markets, parks, historical sites, open spaces, coastal areas, and cities. Written from the perspective of people’s experiences and responses towards the selected public spaces, the aim of the book is to share their narratives as users, as a way of guiding designers and planners on how they might re-think about engaging with places and people.
