Making Public Places, Balmori Associates, public space, urban design, event [1]

How does urban space become a public place? How does design impact a space’s civic liveliness? On Monday, July 13, 2009, from 10 am to 1 pm, Diana Balmori [2] and her NYC-based landscape and urban design firm Balmori Associates [3], will be unpacking these questions and other issues that surround place-making. 40 landscape architecture and architecture students will join Diana Balmori and Balmori Associates on Monday in the Meatpacking District [4] to use the area as a case study to frame their discussion about public places. The conversation will stream online via tinychat [5] and Twitter [6] as Diana Balmori moderates along with Dutch landscape architect Erik de Jong. Balmori Associates is inviting everyone to share their insights on public places — so share yours today [6] and see what others have to say on July 13!

See more information on facebook [7] and join the conversation by following @balmorilab [6] on Twitter with hashtag #mpplaces.
