Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

The qualities of Livable Cities

The Philips Center for Health and Well-being is creating a series of infographics called the “Insight Series on Livable Cities”, in which snapshots, concepts or statistics about the livability of cities are explained graphically.
Insight Series - Livable Cities - 1

Be sure to click through either on the Flickr image or to the Philips Center for Health and Well-being website. It's an excellent summation of how we need to think about cities, sustainability, and the idea of an integrated public realm.
