Is public space truly equitable? What makes public space comfortable, safe and inviting to all? By teaming up with some of YouthCare’s adolescents and the general public, Miller Hayashi Architects and YouthCare challenge the notion of equitable public space. Both the youth and the general public are invited to answer some simple questions such as: What/Where is equitable space in Seattle; What/Where is not an equitable space in Seattle; What are the qualities of equitable space for you?
