Thinking Public Spaces
BY ANDRÉ SLEIMAN
@ VOL 20
ON SEP 10, 2014
In Thinking Public Spaces, André Sleiman tackles the oh-so-controversial issue of public spaces in Lebanon, and invites the audience to reflect upon the balance to be found between public and private property - and well, to "Move it!"
Defining the difference between what is public, and what is private, perhaps it is best to change that for the good of the public. Paid car parks, paid parks, paid beaches. These are just a few of the consequences of what it means to live in a place of private property.

BY ERIKA MASHIG
IN NEW WESTMINSTER
In her talk, Erika Mashig explains how the original “parklet” stood in place in a parking stall in San Fransisco for two hours – the maximum term of the lease offered on the meter. When the meter expired, the sod, bench and tree were taken away and the space resumed as a parking stall. She goes on to explain how this grass roots initiative has caught on, and evolved into what is known as a “parklet”- the transformation of parking spaces on the street into places for people to sit, relax, and enjoy the city.
The Case for Transit
BY DOUGLAS FUNKE
@ VOL 19
ON MAR 14, 2018
"It was a streetcar network that reached into all the nooks and crannies of Buffalo."
In The Case for Transit from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, President of Citizens for Regional Transit (CRT) in Buffalo, NY, Doug Funke, recalls the days of efficient streetcar transportation in Buffalo, New York and advocates for improving the current public transportation challenges in the Buffalo Niagara region. The 1950's and 1960's saw a decline in public transport and a car-focused lifestyle with pockets of transit isolation. Funke and the CRT advocate for a return to a more climate-friendly and sustainable approach to public transportation.
