Occupy Wall Street made Zuccotti Park famous as a small urban open space. Questions of ownership and management, use and access, purpose and program have now crossed over into the mainstream dialogue. How have these privately owned public spaces performed and what have we learned?
1) Know landscape architecture's role in social sustainability and urban revitalization through urban space design.
2) Explain how incentive zoning created a 90-acre ""shadow park" system of privately owned public spaces in Manhattan.
3) Understand the landscape architectural perspective of the Occupy Wall Street/Zuccotti Park episode's conflicts, access, and public value.
4) Learn design strategies for managing private and public expectations and pursuing design excellence for these important interstitial urban spaces.
