A New Face for an Old Broad { Photo Recap }










Beginning with the bike parade, day 2 of the New Face for an Old Broad event was not without constant activity. Pop-up shops, skate parks, live music, street vendors and artists were in place to lure Memphians to the emerging arts district. One thing the event proved was that, in the idea of place-making and designing good architecture, it is not successful if people are not there to activate the space. Creating a place people want to inhabit and also engages them is the essence of good design. //Popsicle photo caption: Atticus' photo of his popsicle helped him deal with the loss. The popsicle has melted and has gone but he gets to keep this photo forever. //See another article by Mary Cashiola recapping the event here.
