Site Furniture Selection and Placement

Furniture is just one component in the design of the public realm. Designers should take into consideration the function and goals of the site by focusing on how people will use the location. Navigation patterns and intent to use the amenities within a space are just as important as the aesthetics of the product itself.  

Learn why placement matters, as well as how to select and plan placement of Bike Racks, Tables & Chairs, Benches, and Waste Receptacles.
