Per my most recent post, I thought I should pass this along. If you’ve never been to a forum at the Levin College, you are missing out. Plus you might get a chance to meet James Corner of High Line and Freshkills fame.

Join us for this interactive forum to learn more about the latest design strategies for Public Square.  James Corner, noted urban designer and landscape architect with James Corner Field Operations, and the Kent State Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative will present three designs for Public Square.  Participants will have ample opportunity to view the plans, ask questions, share their ideas and discuss ways to make Public Square a vital center and gathering place connecting Cleveland’s downtown.
James Corner Field Operations is a leading-edge urban design and landscape architecture practice based in New York City. Serving an international clientele, the practice is renowned for strong contemporary design across a variety of high-profile project types and scales. Current projects include the highly publicized High Line linear park in New York City; transformation of the 2,200-acre Staten Island landfill site Fresh Kills into New York City’s largest urban park as well as projects in Baltimore, Memphis, Paterson, New Jersey and a number of international projects.
