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.

Steps at Smithsonian American Art Museum featuring an homage to the Gene Davis exhibit at the museum.

The reality is I am sucker for graphic design featuring stripes and blocks and bold colors, as well as architectural lighting.  This treatment calls attention to the Museum's exhibit on Gene Davis, called "Hot Beat."  Other exhibits in the past on the Washington Color School featured painting of color bars on nearby streets, but that gets eroded pretty quickly and loses its visual impact.
