Kansas City: Create Places, Not Skylines
"In the rush to rebuild a dozen-block swath of downtown Kansas City with mega-projects, Fred Kent has some humble suggestions to make it a destination people would enjoy."
"What architects and planners need to remember when designing their grand projects, he said, are the ordinary people who will or otherwise won't use them each day. That means giving them benches to sit, opportunities to explore new activities and an eclectic environment where serendipity can flourish..." says Fred Kent, president of the New York-based Project for Public Spaces.
