A few weeks ago we put out a call for volunteers to assist with the work Gehl Studio will be doing beginning this Spring. To kick things off, our first event is a fun workshop on April 21st, at 6:30pm at the Old Post Office in Union Square. This “People First Design” workshop will introduce all of you to the Gehl Studio team members, their experiences around the world in building better Cities for People, and help us identify the qualities you feel are important for public open space throughout Somerville.
If you are going to attend, please register on Eventbrite: http://goo.gl/HqK9EI so we know how much food to provide.
Please feel free to invite any of your friends or neighbors that are interested in public open space.
To get a head start on the workshop, please fill out our “Favorite Places Survey”. This short questionnaire will assist Gehl Studio in understanding more about everyone’s favorite existing places in Somerville and inform future work as the project unfolds. You may forward the link for the survey to others if you wish – the more responses the better.
