How We Use Urban Public Space

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR)


The public spaces found throughout our cities have long been a crucial component of the urban fabric, acting as a confluence of urban design and architecture, art and culture, dialogue and politics. Streets, plazas, roads and parks not only provide texture to our neighborhoods, they are the spaces that we use to traverse a city, commune with our loved ones, and assert our ideologies. This opening panel of ‘Ideas + Action 2020: Public Space, will explore the role that urban public space plays in our lives and how that role has evolved over time, and hear about places that we can both aspire to and learn from.
