The unintended consequences of post-war America urban sprawl was the negligent omission of civic space. To remedy this, place making applied as regenerative urban tissue and as centerpieces of ground up urban framework systems for suburban areas is an essential imperative of building healthy places. Why? Because it’s bankable, both at the micro-scale creating increased asset value, and at the macro-scale by building community.
