Book Presentation: How Spaces Become Places - Place Makers Tell Their Stories by John Forester


Buchpräsentation, Lesung

These are stories of community members acting together to transform empty, contested, or unsafe spaces into functional, safe, convivial places. A diverse set of place makers, from activists to architects, mediators to planners, spanning four countries and ten US locales tell their stories in their own words. The complex and challenging cases range from building affordable housing to community building in the aftermath of racial violence. After grappling with issues like immigration, climate change, and coalition-building, place makers recount how they worked alongside once-suspicious community residents to enhance and enrich the places in which they live.
