Open Space in the Public Realm
This panel will feature three distinguished panelists on the topic of significant public open spaces, including plazas, parks and beaches.

Open Space in the Private Realm
Historic private and residential open space faces a different set of challenges and concerns than do publicly owned spaces. Several prominent speakers will examine some of these issues, such as regulation of these resources and raising awareness of their significance.
