William Whyte 2.0: Uncovering Possibilities for Public Space in Camden

3:15 PM - 4:45 PM
January 1, 1970

From August to December in 2014, the Roosevelt Plaza Park Pop-Up introduced flexible seating, shade, flowers, public art, and conversation starters. The panel will illustrate how temporary improvements tested in Roosevelt Plaza Park were designed and used to evaluate user experience and advocate for future improvements at this central public space in downtown Camden, NJ. From this experience the panel will discuss how metrics can be used to evaluate what works and what doesn’t and how those metrics lead to meaningful suggestions for future improvements.
