How to Turn a Place Around

Project for Public Spaces

ANNOUNCING Project for Public Spaces's Spring Workshop
May 19-20 in New York City


This two-day workshop is 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 and Battery Park City*, two contrasting areas of New York City. 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. (*Site subject to change.)

To register or for more information, please visit the workshop webpage,, or contact Kathleen Ziegenfuss at 212-620-5660, [email protected].
