Abstract: This paper examines the redefinition of public urban space through the evaluation and implementation of a series of globally interconnected interactive & robotic kiosks. Through the utilization and deciphering of relevant urban big data, “Public Sphere” creates a new tangible layer within the urban fabric accessed through local and global reactive interfaces that exposes the “contemporary” urban dweller to a network of urban ecologies that had previously remained hidden or overlooked. Through a series of studies examining the relationship between “Users, Robot & Global Network”, this paper outlines the processes and inquiries that inform the current location of this ongoing research.
