Reading the Public Realm

Posted By on Wed, Sep 15, 2010 at 8:45 AM

The Memphis Regional Design Center will start another session of its Urban Design 101 on September 28th.

I've taken this class and thought it was really great. And, of course, I wrote about it.

What is the Regional Design Center? I wrote about that, too. Check it out here.

From the Regional Design Center itself:

UD 101 will examine the transformative impact that innovative physical planning and design of the "public realm" are having upon the quality and success of urban life. The course will introduce a cross section of our region's civic leaders - representing a mix of public, private and non-profit organizations - to the basic concepts, vocabulary, and techniques of urban design as reflected in a variety of contemporary place-making initiatives in Memphis and across the country.

Fun, no?
