Project for Public Spaces invites you to our two-day training course
"How to Turn a Place Around" -- November 3-4 in New York City.
HOW TO TURN A PLACE AROUND
Is a two-day workshop designed for professionals and non-professionals
who help shape towns and cities -- from highway engineers and real
estate developers to community garden advocates and housing specialists.
Based on PPS's 30 years of experience in Placemaking, and inspired by
our popular book, "How to Turn a Place Around," the course shows
step-by-step our unique approach to revitalization.
During the course, participants work in small teams to observe and
analyze places in Greenwich Village, a thriving historic neighborhood
that's evolved enormously in recent years. It provides ample examples of
mixed-use buildings, residences and offices, and historic brownstones
next to new developments, on varying scales. The sites will be used to
illustrate complexities in making places, encourage a user's point of
view, and provide insight into how public spaces function.
The registration fee covers two days of tuition, including a
neighborhood tour, in-depth presentations and discussions, on-site
evaluation, case studies, a copy of How to Turn a Place Around, and
training support materials. Light lunch and refreshments will be
provided on both Thursday and Friday. There is a reception Thursday
evening (included) and we will make recommendations for dinner Friday
night should you want to continue the discussion (not included in the
Fees: Individuals -- $475 (PPS members $425). Team rate (3 or more) --
$435 (PPS members $385)
