It is well documented that the ways we design and manage urban public spaces contribute to the exclusion of certain groups of people. Still the ways we can design and manage urban public space to include rather than exclude people is doubtful. Why is this? An argument is that public space always includes some while it excludes some others. This view could and must be challenged by design. If we have been designing public spaces serving elites, or the majority and excluding or marginalizing the Other – sexism and patriarchy disadvantaging almost half of human population – then we must be capable of intentionally designing public spaces so that they are inclusive rather than exclusive. If we agree that public space in our cities partly represents as well as shapes our ideas of democracy and participation then we may intentionally design public space for Democracy.
