Jeffrey Betcher's curator insight, July 12, 4:53 PM

It's nice to see #Fran_Tonkiss' emphasis on the social when it comes to public places.  At #Quesada_Gardens in SF's #Bayview neighborhood, our design process is a consensus approach that starts with existing use of land, and the needs of those who live, work, study and play nearby as those folks express those needs.  Otherwise we would be doing what usually happens: a few "experts" drawing up defensible design solutions and then marketing them to try to get buy-in from folks.  And we would be missing out on the inherent energy and wisdom within "place."

Turning a Former Coal Mine Into A Sculpture Park | Sustainable Cities Collective

Turning a Former Coal Mine Into A Sculpture Park | Sustainable Cities Collective | Placemaking , Community Building, Network Culture | Scoop.it
Scotland tries to become one of the first countries to run solely on renewable energy, the question of what to do with the country’s abandoned mining infrastructure offers a unique challenge to landscape architects. In one Scottish village, Sanquhar, the answer is to transform a former coal mine into a 55-acre work of land art. Conjuring images of Stonehenge, the art work, which opened July 10, was built from materials found on-site, including 2,000 boulders half-buried below ground.

-*+Young people use public spaces just as much as anyone else, if not more. And yet, too often young people, or young adults between the ages of 12 to 25, are not included in the process of Placemaking and end up "loitering" in other spaces.
