“Philadelphia is at a pivotal point in terms of governance and politics. How should the next administration approach design and urbanism as it relates to public good? How can we sustain the remarkable public space improvements of the last ten years?”
PennPraxis and PlanPhilly will pose these questions as they kick off Praxis Dialogues, a new series of conversations exploring the notion of the public good in design practice. Their first forum will look at the public good, design practice, and the design, use, and stewardship of our public spaces.
That forum will bring together Beth Miller, Executive Director of the Community Design Collaborative; Brian Abernathy, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority; David Gould, Program Officer for R&D/New Initiatives at the William Penn Foundation; and Scott Page, principal and founder of Interface Studio.
Each panelist is teeing up the dialogue with a PlanPhilly column. Read Beth Miller’s recent PlanPhilly contribution, Strengthening Neighborhoods through Public Interest Design, and register for the December 1st forum!
