ambigious placemaking and a tale of two bazaars

There’s a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have
Two meanings

–Stairway to Heaven

Arguably, there is nowhere better than a bazaar to capture the essence or ambiance of an urban place.

In cities and towns across the globe, pedestrian access remains central to this age-old form of market expression.

in contrast, in the American holiday bazaar, hoop and converted gymnasium define a not-so urban experience of temporary tables and seasonal vending. A cynical view? Inadvertent walkability amid the commerce of the car.

Same word, different story, all in Led Zepplin’s signature song.
