Public Space Planning and Design Manual


Researchers will study public space from the perspectives of biophilic design, experiential design, physiology, programming, public art, regenerative design and sense of place. The final work will be formatted as a design manual and presented to the various organizers and the 50th International Planning Congress. A supplemental study on “Water and Public Space” will coincide with the Congress theme.
