Using art for urban planning

December 22, 2017


Cities looking to engage the public in urban planning are ditching traditional town meetings in favor of eye-catching, artist-designed tools like a mobile sign shop, a really big table, transportable photo studio with built-in darkrooms, and a pop-up ping pong table.
