Sometimes it seems like every street in New York City has one or two buildings with scaffolding bridging the sidewalk.

Tiber Chair

One of the hallmarks of successful urban spaces all over the world is the use of movable chairs. William Whyte’s studies in The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces found that people create ownership of public space by being able to control where and how they sit. This theory was recently tested in Times Square, where the moveable chairs in the new pedestrian plaza have proven to be enormously popular.

But will the same application work in Italy? That’s what Friends of the High Line Co-Founder Robert Hammond will soon find out.
