Project for Public Spaces

Given the heated discussion and debate surrounding the future redevelopment of the World Trade Center site, it is no surprise that there is a great deal of interest in public places, along with much dissent about what makes an effective and meaningful public place. Drawing on the work of the late William H. Whyte (whose seminal book, The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces is still read today), the Project for Public Spaces is dedicated to creating and sustaining public spaces that build communities. The site contains a number of best practices information on such places as parks, plazas, streets, public buildings, and public markets that will be of great interest to planners, civic officials, landscape architects, and anyone seeking to restore meaning and usability to a wide variety of places. Additionally, visitors can elect to subscribe to PPS's free bi-monthly newsletter, Making Places.
