Who should design public spaces? Should they even be designed at all? Can public space make a meaningful contribution to solving the world’s environmental problems? How should the success of a public space be measured?

These questions, as well as many more, will be discussed by public space scholars, practitioners, and activists at Harvard University's upcoming conference on public space, Putting Public Space in its Place. The conference will focus on physical public space, ranging from parks, streets, sidewalks, and other temporary spaces.

The event is free and open to the public and will be held on Thursday, March 7th and Friday, March 8th 2013 at Gund Hall’s Piper Auditorium, 48 Quincy St., Cambridge, MA. For more information, visit the Harvard University Graduate School of Design site.
