To formulate criteria for design of humane urban places for children on the basis of children's preferences and needs. The findings, recorded on tape, in a narrative document, on photographs of San Francisco scenes, drawings, and stories by the children and principal investigator will be published in a book and used in a mobile graphic exhibit.
