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.

Kennedyplatz in Essen, Germany (updated)

Rainy and overcast, but a cool space nonetheless.

There are a bunch of pedestrian only streets and spaces in the city square, and the tourist information center is across from the train station.

There is a music festival staring Friday, which is presumably what is being set up in the Plaza now.
