James Corner, noted urban designer and landscape architect with James Corner Field Operations and the Kent State Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative will present three designs for Public Square. Participants will have ample opportunity to view the plans, ask questions, share their ideas and discuss ways to make Public Square a vital center and gathering place connecting Cleveland’s downtown.
