As Cities have adopted the “entrepreneurial” turn, many urban interventions initiated or encouraged by public authorities rely on the financial capacity as well as the know-how of both for-profit and not-for-profit private interests to (re)develop land. Presentations will examine public-private partnerships that contribute to the development of ostensibly public space, the creation of urban amenities as well as the formulation of urban design aesthetics and production of architectural quality.
