Places: Forum of Design for the Public Realm
Founded in 1983 by architecture faculty at MIT and Berkeley, Places is an interdisciplinary journal of contemporary architecture, landscape and urbanism, with particular emphasis on the public realm as physical place and social ideal. Places is published by the Design History Foundation and supported by a consortium of U.S. universities as well as organizational and individual sponsors. In 2009 Places published its last print issue and moved online as an open-access journal at places.designobserver.com, in partnership with the Design Observer Group. In this new format, Places publishes peer-reviewed scholarship as well as topical commentary, observations, reviews and visual portfolios, with two new articles every week. The print archive (1983-2009) is available in pdf format, both at Design Observer and here on eScholarship, as part of the California Digital Library.
