The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces

Small fragment of William H. Whyte’s witty and original film about the open spaces of cities and why some of them work for people while others do not.

  1. I am so glad you posted this! I was shown this as part of an urban studies class in design school and it totally changed my focus at the time. People watching is always enjoyable anyway. Applying more thought to why people choose the spaces they choose is a really interesting way to see a deeper connection between us and architecture.

  2. Awesome stuff, I watched the whole thing and was mesmorised!
