Why We’re Jealous of Cuba


With traveling sanctions now lifted, more people will witness first-hand the gorgeous, people-centered city of Havana, Cuba.

Project for Public Spaces shares how Havana streets are incredible public spaces, bursting with social activity and built for human scale. Havana’s public markets act as community hubs, longstanding architecture is preserved, historic squares and pocket parks fill the town and the city’s boulevards “rival the world’s best center median boulevards and are defining icons of their neighborhoods.”

Though Cuba does have its problems, US planners and landscape architects should take note of the placemaking and identity evident in Cuba’s spaces.
