Classic Documentary on Public Space Now Available Online

1 post in this topic

William H. Whyte's thinking on public spaces influenced Mayor Bill Frederick's thinking as he entered office in 1981 promising to remake what had become a very sad downtown. Some of the ideas that would find resonance in downtown O-town include the open space at Barnett Plaza (now the Seacoast National Bank Building) and the decision to angle 20 North Orange (Wells Fargo) to create a more interesting space.

Whyte was also a fan of Orlando's close-in neighborhoods such as Lake Davis/Lake Cherokee.
