Placemaking in Shaw
Earlier this year, I attended a fascinating conference hosted by Project for Public Spaces entitled How to Turn a Place Around. One of the course hand-outs was a booklet entitled How to Turn a Place Around (available here), which I highly recommend to anyone interested in the subject of urban revitalization and in the subject of placemaking. The course aim was to educate on how to create a successful public space -- be it a park, a street, a neighborhood, a waterfront, a planned community, or a city. As I've had a few months to think about the conference, I plan to do a series of posts related to my experience and takeaways from the course.
