Evaluation Method
The evaluation method is adapted from a process developed by the "Project for Public Spaces". Our evaluation is based on the psychogeographical reaction to the space by the person visiting the square. Second part of the classification system is called types of square. This is also very good starting point for explorers wishing to examine squares starting with their characteristics.
