“Early childhood is a critical stage for healthy brain development. While good public policy and public health have important roles to play in improving outcomes, architect Itai Palti, director of Studio Hume and designer of the Urban Thinkscape project in West Philadelphia, believes architects and planners can help as well. In this article from Van Alen Report 20, Itai spells out a recipe to build opportunities for learning and creativity on every sidewalk, bus stop, and corner of the city and offers advice for scaling up the impact of these learning-based interventions.”
