In the context of the current information explosion and consumption surge, new technologies driven by information and communication technology, mobile Internet constantly affect the way people communicate, and thus change the use public space. Pop art and popular culture increasingly digitalizing, the network virtual space and the city’s physical space are intertwined with each other, producing a violent evolution together. Norms and de-normalization, decentralization and fragmentation of public social have triggered changes and conflicts in urban public areas.Because of the Internet’s borderlessness, subsidence, subculture, subgroups continue to appear (Hanmai、Live-streaming and Gawu), resulting in urban space participants more diverse, more complex and dynamic. With Smart City, Internet of Things, Big Data and other emerging technologies, people’s communication alienated, but these technologies also help people-oriented comprehensive perception. Within such technical humanity, the traditional use patterns and forms of public space began to deconstruct, but at the same time in the fragmented technical driving force, public space can be reconstruct in a new model. This study combines the Smart City with the Lefebvre’s space theory, trying to examine the changing characteristics of the public space through the interdisciplinary perspective, and prospects the future.
