A Nice Place to Live

Thinking big in a small town: landscape architecture case studies of vibrant public space in Oxford and beyond.
The presentation hopes to begin a dialogue about the future of public space in Oxford. As the town grows and develops, Oxford has the opportunity to continue being a regional precedent as a stimulating and sustainable community. The presentation will identify site design features that contribute to vibrant public space. We will also look at case studies of public space in Charlottesville, VA; Chicago, IL; and New York, NY. We will review certain site features that make the case studies successful and draw parallels to public spaces that already exist in Oxford. Lastly, we will think conceptually of ways to link a network of existing centrally located public spaces in Oxford while augmenting and amplifying their qualities.
