The concepts of public and private are not diametrically opposed, but rather exist on a continuum. The success of public architecture is determined by the interaction between the two, for both the individual and the collective. Here ‘C3’ considers how public ownership and privatisation play out across several typologies, from open spaces and swimming pools, to mixed-use buildings and museums. Among the featured projects are the Amos Rex Museum by JKMM Architects, Dominique Perrault’s Paris Longchamp Racecourse, Aarhus Harbour Bath by BIG, the Palestinian Museum by Heneghan Peng Architects, and the Apple Piazza Liberty by Foster + Partners.
