One year following the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and a public debate of the function of open space in cities around the globe and nation, the question of the definition and design of public space today continues. In this third public space symposium, a group of individuals representing design, planning, and civic organizations will continue the conversation of the parameters and criteria for the design and use of the public and publicly accessible environment.
