The ways our public spaces are used, managed and planned have a massive influence on the factors that make a city a successful place in which to live and work. So, for this edition of Modus, we're switching our focus from the buildings and structures that shape our cities, to the spaces around them.

With the rise of privately-owned public spaces (POPS), we ask what constitutes public space and should we be less concerned about who owns what, and more about how it should be managed?

Also on the subject of public space:

  • we look at how city planners can use the boom in personal data generated by mobile devices to build better public spaces
  • we consider the space – and development opportunities – that would be opened up by removing cars from our streets.

In Asia-Pacific, we review the year in the built environment in China and Hong Kong, and celebrate the winners of the RICS Awards 2019 in both territories.

And we ask whether Oyo Hotels' franchising model could transform the market in Asia; what makes a city "relevant"; and how Auckland can build more homes when it's desperately short of skilled construction workers.

Finally, we pick out some of the more interesting findings from this year's RICS and MacDonald & Company Rewards and Attitudes Survey for Asia-Pacific.
