Improving the Quality of Life in Urban Parks

Project for Public Spaces

New York, NY - The Urban Parks Institute at Project for Public Spaces, America's leading public spaces nonprofit, has received a holiday donation from the architectural and landscape architectural firm, Ratio Architects, Inc.

Ratio chose the Urban Parks Institute (UPI) because of the high quality of UPI's work.

"We believe the Institute's focus upon local participation and control, highly active programming and unrelenting maintenance is a very appropriate message to be sending to park stakeholders across the nation, and we wish to thank them for their substantial contribution" says Kenneth Boyee, Principal-in-Charge of Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture at Ratio.
