It was said by Luigi Ferrara from, The Institute Without Boundaries, that young people want public spaces to meet and work in; social intervention is the movement that is happening today. People are attracted to beautiful spaces, they love being in them and working in them. Many rural cities can learn that it’s time to create beautiful spaces that people can gather in.  We must see the cities as a place of social interaction.  This is the type of space this new generation is looking for. Create social spaces that are beautiful and that people want to be a part of.  Also, understand that anyone under 24 shops online not in stores so create more social spaces and less retail spaces.

Do you agree that young people want more of a social experience over material items and that people in general will be attracted by beautiful spaces? Do you believe that retail stores in the next 5 years will be less of a physical place and more of a social media place to buy items – what about the work space in the next 5 years – how will that change ?
