Film Screening: The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces 2013

PLACE Built Environment Centre are screening William H Whyte’s witty original 1980 study of the open spaces of cities and why some of them work as social spaces while others don’t. Beginning at New York’s Seagram Plaza, one of the most used open areas in the city, the film proceeds to analyze why this space is so popular and how other urban spaces, both in New York and elsewhere, measure up. Based on direct observation of what people actually do, the film presents a remarkably engaging and informative tour of the urban landscape and looks at how it can be made more hospitable to those who live in it.
