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.

Something I missed: NYC's Festival of Ideas for the New City

-- Festival of Ideas for the New City

From the description of the project:

Festival of Ideas for the New City is a major new collaborative initiative in New York involving scores of Downtown organizations working together to harness the power of the creative community to imagine the future city and explore ideas that will shape it. The Festival will include a three-day slate of symposia; an innovative StreetFest along the Bowery; and over eighty independent projects and public events.

"Downtown Manhattan Becomes a Dynamic Laboratory for Creative Thinking" from Art Daily, "Pictures: Festival Of Ideas For NYC 2011"‎ from Gothamist, and too late for us, "10 Things You Need to Do at the Festival of Ideas for the New City" from L Magazine.
