Miller's Designs on the Public: The Private Lives of New York's Public Spaces

The University of Minnesota Press has published Kristine F. Miller's (Landscape Architecture) Designs on the Public: The Private Lives of New York's Public Spaces. In the book Miller examines how design influences six of New York's most important public spaces, including Times Square, Trump Tower, the IBM Atrium, and Federal Plaza.

"Design is, in Miller's view, complicit in regulation of public spaces in New York City to exclude undesirables, restrict activities, and privilege commercial interests, and in this work she shows how design can reactivate public space and public life."
