Tulsa, Oklahoma Jane Jacobs Walk: Public Spaces Tour

  • Topeca Coffee 115 W 5th St Tulsa, OK, 74103 United States

It's Planning Month! Join the City of Tulsa Planning Department and Tulsa Foundation for Architecture as we discover downtown through the eyes of Jane Jacobs, an urban activist from the 1960s who took a critical look about how cities function, evolve, and fail in her book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. We will look at the buildings and public spaces that make downtown Tulsa and explore the impact history, preservation, transportation, and urban renewal has had. We will discuss what makes these places successful or not? What changes could be made to make spaces more engaging? We each have our own ideas of what places are vibrant, appealing places; we return frequently to these places!
