Welcome to the Public Realm.

27 Dec

Speaking to you from the Helm…this is Erin Chantry! Welcome to At the Helm of the Public Realm, a blog on urban design, planning, and architecture. I am a trained urban designer, planner, and architect and a lover of the built environment. I hope to create a place where professionals, teachers, students, and people interested in the world around them can discuss their views of every aspect of the built environment…cities, neighborhoods, street patterns, streetscapes, communities, economic development, regeneration and many more.

I invite you to comment on my posts and follow them by subscribing on the right. If you have any questions or suggestions I’d love to hear them…please get in touch at erin.chantry@helmofthepublicrealm.com. You can also visit my Twitter feed through the menu on the right or at @helmpublicrealm. I hope to post at least 3 times a week so please check in. I’ll see you here!
