SPUR Forum: Imagining the Street

From SPUR:

What does your ideal street look like? Are there elements pulled from what you see on a daily basis? The best parts of a street are oftentimes the things we experience but fail to pay attention to. Embark on a guided tour to better understand the details that make up our urban fabric, and then utilize what you’ve learned in a hands-on workshop to build a truly ideal street. Generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
