Square Speculations

See the above sketch for the first in several thoughts on how Public Square could be revisioned. This attempt and subsequent attempts to re-design Public Square may not always present fully developed concepts - expect to see practical solutions as well as ambitious and sometimes outrageous elements. Regardless, our intent is to encourage the discussion and dissemination of larger ideas that will result in a fully-utilized Public Square and a thoroughly considered monumental space that Clevelanders can be proud of and visitors write home to mom about.

We encourage comments and hope to see further discussion and visions for a new Public Square. See Improvised Schema's Call for Ideas and reactions from "The Design Rag" and "Blog on the City" for background on the Public Square challenge.

I like the idea of the grid. I could see all of those little dots as lights (poles in the trees and ground lights in the open spaces). It would be quite spectacular to walk through the "forest" with the light showing through the leaves. Hopefully we can get some more ideas up.

Nice thought. A further refined gridded plaza could look like a field of stars in the evening. Maybe the points of light are floating at a height just above the trees or as you suggest, across the pavement in front of you in all directions... or both.
