Ash Blankenship is the founder of Parksify, a project focused on promoting the importance of public spaces that he has been working on since 2013. He now releases regular podcasts with fascinating thinkers focused on how good (or bad) public spaces impact the places we live. This dissemination of knowledge is absolutely crucial as we try to figure out what works and what doesn’t for public spaces. He has a unique perspective that is well worth hearing.
