But it makes sense, when you think about it: by directly involving communities in shaping their public spaces–leading with people, not design–Placemaking is in fact a highly disruptive approach.

Interesante lo que dice Ricardo Semler porque, además, habla de una realidad que transcurre diariamente en las escuelas que apoya.

Interesante en general, porque es un encuentro en lo que todavía existe y para donde se puede evolucionar en educación.
