Event description

Description

The public realm is much more than a utilitarian system of connections to get from here to there. It is where people walk, meet, and where they socialize. It is where they take in the views, where they see what merchants have to offer, and where they come to know their neighborhood and their fellow citizens.

In this presentation, Neil Hrushowy, Manager of San Francisco's City Design Group, will discuss new public space design ideas for environments that are open to all and how these designs need to work with present urban problems of homelessness, safety, and changing population. The discussion will encompass not just the beauty of design but how people use and react to design in environments where city problems may occur such as Market Street and Civic Center in San Francisco.

About the speaker:
Neil Hrushowy and h​is team of urban designers are responsible for leading stree​t​scape designs, public realm plans, urban design review for new development, and advising other City agencies on all aspects of public realm design. They seek to balance all the functions of a street to make San Francisco's public realm a truly gracious civic space and to put people and quality of place foremost.​ Neil has a Phd from UC Berkeley in City and Regional Planning, an MS from UC Davis in Natural Resource Economics, and an AB in Economics from Princeton.
