The DSN S 546: Products of Public Space (PoPS) studio will host this lecture by David Dahlquist, a principal at RDG Planning & Design in Des Moines and an artist who has produced significant installations as part of both interior and exterior architectural and public space designs. Dahlquist will speak about placemaking in public spaces.

Taught by Kevin Owens, lecturer in industrial design, Products of Public Space is an interdisciplinary, experimental learning studio that exposes upper-level students to a range of real-world issues of public space in the Greater Des Moines region and beyond. Students then use their expertise to propose creative interventions for Des Moines that focus on entertainment and tourism; economic development; recreation and quality of life; vibrant urban experience; technology development; reversing the "brain drain"; sustainable energy; sustainable watershed; creation of new business models; and lifestyle choices for all generations.
