The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces

I had no idea that William H. Whyte’s Social Life of Small Urban Spaces was available online. The first ten minutes of the video from the Project on Public Spaces is on YouTube.

I tacked Whyte’s classic text onto my list of Books for Service Designers a few months ago. The project provides a visceral glimpse into proxemics and sociofugal/sociopetal space but it’s mostly interesting from an ethnographic perspective.

UX Brighton will be holding a public screening of the full film on Tuesday, June 9th, 2009 at 7:30pm.
