Abstract:

The article presents authors reflections on objects co-creating the new image of the cities and encouraging creating an interactive, multicultural space. The presented problems discuss architecture in the context of transferring information and activation of public places in the city. They are an element of research concerning the role of functions dominating the composition of a city that is being conducted by the team of researchers from the Silesian University of Technology and the Lodz University of Technology. The text discusses two groups of problems: 1) the question of the selected objects belonging to a predetermined to significative group; 2) an attempt to analyse the factors creating the human context in architecture.
