Placemaker Fred Kent

The Project for Public Spaces Founder Has Always Had a Passion for Place

Fred Kent is the founder and president of the Project for Public Spaces, a New York-based organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build stronger communities. Before participating in a panel on the role of architects in shaping cities, he talked about the piano and musicals—but mostly about his passion for placemaking—in the Zócalo green room.
