On Friday April 24th, 2015, the UMass Amherst Landscape Architecture urban design studio led a tour through the city of Springfield MA, showcasing their ideas for how public space around town could be revitalized through strategic city planning. That week, the students invited residents to join them for what they called “No Space Left Behind: The Activation of Residual Spaces in Downtown Springfield” – an exhibition of the concepts behind their studio work during the semester.
