As I work on the new book, I come across people and projects that are directly relevant, and also projects that are tangential but worth thinking about it terms of what it will really take to restore a third-place landscape. I’ll be posting links here with annotation, as a kind of work-in-progress notebook, and would appreciate hearing your recommendations, too.
- Free-Range Kids – surprisingly relevant because free-range kids will want and need and create third places.
- Project for Public Spaces: “To Make a Great Third Place, Get Out of the Way” – a worthy organization that makes a common mistake, at least on this page about third places, by confusing public or civic space with a third place. Both value, and often connected, but not the same thing.
