What makes an urban space special? Can those elements be bottled, replicated and adopted elsewhere? Can technology and artistic expression better the relationship between the sidewalk and its users? Come hear a rapid-fire presentation from a slate of planners, designers and community leaders as they discuss how innovation and urban prototyping in the public realm is improving cities around the world.

In collaboration with the Market Street Prototyping Festival.
