The critical need for SOCIAL CONNECTION
What is an URBAN PLAZA?
UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES toward creating socially optimized urban plazas
A SCORING TOOL to measure existing public spaces for sociability & to develop new ones
REAL-WORLD examples of successful and not so successful urban plazas
LAST WORDS about what urban plazas can be

Urban public spaces, in the way of plazas and squares, play an essential role in the social, psychological, economic, and civic health of urban communities. These spaces also contribute to the cultural interest and vibrancy to a city. This presentation also introduces universal principles to ensure successful urban plazas, and a methodology to evaluate or create them.

Chris will share several of his favorite projects and discuss the design and implementation process behind his and other designers work.

Come join us for inspiration and education!
