Posted By Olivia Chen On July 9, 2009 @ 5:30 pm In Design,Events,News,Urban design | 5 Comments
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  and her NYC-based landscape and urban design firm Balmori Associates , 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  to use the area as a case study to frame their discussion about public places. The conversation will stream online via tinychat  and Twitter  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  and see what others have to say on July 13!
