There is a lack of consideration for “place” in American urban planning that Ethan Kent finds unacceptable. It offends him the way ugly typography offends graphic designers. He works as senior vice president of Project for Public Spaces (PPS) in New York, where they are trying to turn the way we shape cities upside down. Over its 40-year history PPS has focused on turning public spaces into great spaces.
