2014 attendees can expect the largest lineup yet, drawing from fields such as mapping, interactive art, design policy, and DIY biology. The theme this year is wayfinding, describing a collective design process used to solve social challenges.
The CPC considers an amendment to RISD’s Master Plan, a street abandonment, and more at their March 18th meeting.
We believe that as proposed, these plans do little to increase access to all users; moreover, the decision to start this work at James Street even as the I-195 Commission has issued specific developer criteria for that stretch of road and riverfront is unfortunate in the extreme. It demonstrates yet again a failure to implement both the city’s and the state’s goals for complete streets and integrated transportation into the actual operations of their agencies.
WaterFire, Superman Building, Roger Williams Park, and more in today’s GC: Photos.
Very busy weekend in Providence, you cannot be bored.
