This presentation will describe how placeless practices and landscapes that characterize modern urban planning are being actively and aggressively retrofitted through place-based citizen engagement.

Lakeman will discuss the transformation of Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square and the movement to transform public space all over North America and Europe.
