If you can buy into author Ray Oldenburg's idea of the Third Place -- public spots we choose to celebrate and socialize with family, friends, and acquaintances -- it's hard to deny that public art, restaurant design, and local hospitality play a huge part in our community and daily lives.
The TEDxScottsdaleSalon, curated and organized by Jim McPherson, Bob Diehl, and Andrew Knochel, will also be a chance for attendees to ask questions, talk with presenters, and discuss the importance of a place's design in an evolving city environment.
