Squares

With historical roots in cultures all over the world, the public square is being rediscovered as an effective tool for bringing people together.

In cities and towns around the world, people are crying out for lively gathering places where civic life flourishes and different cultures mix. Public squares are important to cities’ social and economic future because they are where people experience their neighborhoods and each other. The benefits go far beyond just making better spaces for people:

  • Economic and Community Development – Public squares can catalyze private investment and small scale entrepreneurial activities.
  • Community identity – Squares nurture and define community identity by providing a sense of identity, encouraging volunteerism, and highlighting the values within the community.
  • Bridge-building – Squares draw a diverse population, including more women, elderly, and children, as well as a greater ethnic and cultural mix – and encouraging people to get involved and take pride in the area. Public squares are a “common ground.”
