About this Research Topic

Abstract Submission Deadline 15 August 2022
Manuscript Submission Deadline 14 October 2022

In the last few years, with the spread of the pandemic and the closure of public and recreational facilities, urban public spaces have played a key role in improving the quality of life and the comfort of citizens by offering many opportunities for users to overcome stress, interact, and enjoy themselves. With the rising level of the citizens' expectations and needs, designing a urban space has become a critical task with various dimensions. Social cohabitation, environmental protection, health care and the well-being of citizens are among the main considerations of urban public spaces’ stakeholders. In this context, users' satisfaction responds to the space design and features, holding objective and subjective aspects that can be assessed and improved.

Here, several questions arise:
• What new roles have public spaces played during the pandemic?
• How can we assess the level of satisfaction of users in public spaces?
• What are the intervening factors and possible assessment methods?
• What are the lessons learned from this experience in the future design of public space?

Research themes welcomed by this Research Topic include, but are not limited to:
• Public space design;
• Methods and tools to evaluate the satisfaction of users of public spaces;
• Evaluation of the urban public spaces during the pandemic period;
• Post-pandemic vision of public spaces;
• Smart furniture's role to improve urban public spaces;
• Revitalization of public spaces;
• Comfort and quality of public spaces.

Keywords: Urban public spaces, Users' satisfaction, Pandemic period, Quality of public spaces, Public spaces for a changing public life
