Placemaking is a people focused way of promoting and guiding the use of a space. Wonderful creative and effective things happen when you build a community around a place.
Placemaking inspires people to reimagine spaces as the essence of every community. Its seen as an overarching idea and a hands-on approach setting up an identity and ‘being’ of a space.
Strengthening an association between people and the places they share, placemaking can be large or small areas, commercial, retail or residential.
With an ideology for identity and participation at its centre, an effective placemaking process gets the most out of assets, encouraging inspiration, and interactions.
SPACE-2 have consulted on a number of these projects and its something we really enjoy as understanding, engaging and creativity is at the heart of placemaking.
