Placemaking Network Spring Series: The Advocates

The Advocates: Jane Jacobs, PPS, Leon Krier and the New Urbanists

While all observers, researchers, and theorists have advocated for the creation of quality places within the city and town to a degree, this group of writers is primarily known for their advocacy of a certain prescription for the design of Place, often in opposition to a competing polemic. The influence of 1961’s “The Death an Life of Great American Cities” opposition to top‐down renewal efforts, the Project for Public Spaces’ crowdsourcing and event‐style advocacy, and the New Urbanists’ form‐based codes have all turned the prevailing standards of their times on their heads.


For those who qualify, 1.5 LUs are available
