shutters, placemaking and urbanism

Like streets, doors and windows, shutters stand at the intersection of public and private domains. A venerable urban feature with Greco-Roman origins, the shutter historically provided security, privacy, shading, and ornamental interface. Today, shutters provide one of many ongoing opportunities to recreate a sense of place and vibrantly define the look and feel of city spaces.

The evidence is before our eyes around the world.
