This thesis explains the development, different types and the role of public space in Managua with a special focus on evaluation of ten roundabouts in the urban area of the capital. In the central island of the biggest roundabout in the city a spatial phenomenon occurred; the roundabout de la Virgen was initially occupied and adapted to a recreational space by nearby residents and then transformed into a park, officially in December 2007. The project analyses its development since the occupation until current situation, raises questions and reveals the deficits and potentials with the goal to find a solution which makes the public space in the roundabout safer and more attractive and to create rules which could be used for further planning of public space in Managua.
