Placemaking

Placemaking is about understanding the complex layers of the city, linking them in unexpected ways and creating new narratives to allow curiosity and desire to interlace with the physical space, both existing and new. In this experiential design process, the role of the placemaker is that of a creator, bringing new ideas, as well as a mediator, linking existing processes and people.

The concept of the city as living organism forms the core of being able to devise solutions that will grow and adapt over time – from the smallest interventions to large masterplans and strategic visions. Within this complex system, understanding the overlaps between urban design, architecture, art and engineering enables a shift towards a holistic way of creating places that are better to live in, work in and enjoy.
