In this article Kylie Legge discusses the public realm – the streets, parks and open spaces of our cities – and how they provide us with the physical space to move, to make connections and to build relationships.
World's Best Places
With urban populations growing steadily, public spaces, particularly those that are great for people, are rising in emotional, physical and economic value. We want to capture what makes these people places so great so that everyone can learn from them. Tell us what makes these places work while others flounder... What is the big, or small attraction? Why do they feel comfortable? Or exciting? Or relaxed? What are the key learnings that could be applied to new places or those being improved or even completely redesigned?
This database is open to everyone to contribute to and share so please participate by adding your favourite place, making a comment on one of the places already here or even just giving a place the thumbs up.Launch
