A process and progress of every root have a story attached to it, the value immersed in it carries the potential to survive through times of change and evolution on every side. The ever-changing limits and the expanding trends of youth have shaped a perfunctory state, and spaces for its determined use. An urban space follows a function over form, its promising capacity to adhere to the public has been addressed with patterns and flowing connections from downstream. A timely proposition answered it all with a wide range of solutions to the open public domain. Urban spaces carved out the interaction between the streets and the agile buildings that carry out the motion and active zones allowing to communicate, transit, and build social interaction of the inhabitants of the city. The spaces are expounded on the trail of culture, political influence, economic zones, and the attachment of the history to it. These urban spaces vary with typologies, it has been feeding on, the proportion and scale changes with the due course of the effect, namely to be said as a massive space to a roundabout in the active zone to an atomic settlement in a semi-isolated area. The response of the public space is interrelated to the neighborhood or sector, it belongs to ranging its effect diversely.

The design of such a space has been built upon several factors that indicate the presence of culture, historical background, the ongoing trend set, and functionality of the space. For instance, urban spaces have been merging pathways along the landscape with activities along the pedestrian route denoting an activity and bringing up life in the zone. Superkilen by BIG would be addressed as an exemplar for this scenario, its characteristics speak for the public domain, complementing the built form around the space and operating its area of adaptation between streets and buildings. With context to our roots, we are more driven to parks and open spaces with organic evolution, the relation of this can be seen through the social struggles in the past with a vernacular pattern of growth. The urban spaces for the city had converged over the time than being designed entirely, the essence was carried with-in the public relation to understand the standstill points and signified as the zone with a certain effective measure. This is a growth for a publicly active zone, infused with hawkers, kiosks, and tea vendors marking their areas in the limited accessible space, the herd or the people are controlled with the available walkway and spaces created within the area of access, with another layer we see the vegetable vendors capturing the area and this happens to be a merge of urban space growing on the ease of public access.

 The influence of the west, for the styles, changing culture, and bustling trends have captured our views towards the on-coming time. Flourishing with Plazas connected to the main street, designated zone for a particular activity, collaboration of work lifestyle with the environment, reducing the footprint, and maximizing the delivered output, a controlled environment to move around its as much needed as the growing population and vehicular traffic taking place. The urban space would be more optimized with predefined usage, according to the location and environment. For an instance, an open-air fitness studio near a beach or a water body, streets equipped with bicycle lanes for intercity travel. Such examples lead to an entire change in the system of designing urban spaces for the leading population. The efficient ways to use a space with minimal utility, converting the streets into a user-friendly environment. The in-city examples as seen successfully running through are the spaces underneath the flyovers, space below is conveniently used for a brisk walk laden with outdoor furniture for a momentarily rest. Urban spaces have also been seen to capture greens into its form and reduce the carbon footprint that we consume, it has favorable effects on the surroundings and the environment it breeds in. The shift in the working culture has been observed as more flexible than permanent, the generation has been growing to minimalism with the workplace changing into an open floor with informal meeting spaces, yet maintaining the decorum and discipline. This process leads one to another with hand-in-hand effort from all the public spaces and influencing the mass. It defines how space can engulf and change the trend in the up-beat world.

 Time being a momentary factor in the ever-changing modes of communication, the design of an urban space responds with the effect to the current situation and the for coming scenarios in the social context, they have been sharing the standards and behaviors from the past time to learn and tweak the situation to its best.

The millennial age brings out the unconventional experiences to define the need and practicality of the modern framework.
