Classic Documentary on Public Space Now Available Online

Recommended Posts

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.
