Leonardo Vazquez, AICP/PP , will discuss planning and placemaking
issues facing Latino communities over lunch at the DVRPC in Phillly (190 N. Independence Hall West) - RSVP to Jane Meconi at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, October 8.
Leonardo Vazquez will be discussing issues facing Latino communities in the Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York metropolitan areas as thematized in his new book, Diálogos: Placemaking in Latino Communities . Latinos are one of the largest and fastest growing social groups in the United States, and their increased presence is profoundly shaping the character of urban, suburban, and rural places. Diálogos: Placemaking in Latino Communities is a response to these developments and is the first book written for readers seeking to learn about, engage and plan with Latino communities. It considers how placemaking in marginalized communities sheds light on, and can inform, community-building practices of professionals and place dwellers alike who wish to make effective and sustainable choices for practice in an increasingly multi-ethnic world. The essays explore three aspects of place: the appropriation and territorialization of the built environment, the claiming of rights through collective action, and a sense of belonging through civic participation. The authors illustrate their ideas through case studies and explain the implications of their work for placemaking practice. Lunch is included in the event, and an RSVP is required. This event is open to the public; please feel free to pass the invitation on to anyone who may be interested!
