Description - On the Plaza by Setha M. Low

A multi-discipline study exploring the interplay of space and culture in the plaza, and showing how culture acts to shape public spaces and how the physical form of the plaza encodes the social, political and economic relations within the city. Low centres her study on two plazas in San Jose, Costa Rica, with comparisons to public spaces in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. She interweaves enthnography, history, literature and personal narrative to capture the ambience and meaning of the plaza.
