Abstract: An investigation into the nature of public space in the North American city, this research seeks establish a more appropriate approach to a complex situation. Due to the manner in which North America has developed, true public space is superseded by the dominance of the automobile and private commercial interests. When this condition is tempered with the proliferation of ICTs and internet technology issues of private and public inhabitation become paradoxical. As a result of this study a new navigational system and series of interventions are proposed. These interventions are offered as only one of an incalculable set of possibilities and hope to generate further dialogue.
