City Building Seminar - October 2019
|What if we built the Gold Coast around places|
Ethan Kent, Co-Director of PlaceMakingX and Senior Fellow of Project for Public Spaces, New York
The vision of PlaceMakingX is to make the spaces we live into places we love.
To create a thriving, equitable and sustainable world through the convergence of values, passion and action around our public spaces.
Ethan will present how various (sometimes unlikely) pieces fit together to create a great public destination and demonstrate how placemaking is a process, not an outcome.
