Updated: Jan 5, 2021
A virtual presentation for Car-Free St Pete on September 8, 2020 by Michael Huston, host of The Empirical City blog. The presentation includes a crash course in urban design with an introduction to the two realms (public and private realms), and the concept of the Urban Transect and "urban ecosystems". It follows with conceptual street transformations and examples of successful retrofits of the public realm from around the world.
