Agents of Public Space

In this two week workshop, Parsons students collaborated with students from Architecture and Urbanism College of University of São Paulo to research informality in Union Square. Through interviews, field observations and discussions, we uncovered the dynamic formal and informal relationships between street vendors, law enforcement, patrons, and the business improvement district. Our findings are published on the Agents of Public Space website.
