Pike Place Market in the Context of Everyday Urbanism

Yannah Wijaya

“A city is more than a place in space; it is a drama in time.” – Patrick Geddes

Our trivial, daily, seemingly mundane acts constitute urbanism; a way of living striving in a city. Here, it is not necessarily a city literally but a place or a space that contains the act and culture of living. How can a space initiate urbanism? Or is it people that activate the space first? What can be learnt from everyday urbanism? What can we get? Taking one of the most beloved urban space in Seattle: the Pike Place Market as an example to see how the everyday urbanism takes place and what exactly the relationship between the people, the acts, and the space is.
