Some examples of placemaking projects

NYC highlineThe term "placemaking" describes the process of creating and improving public spaces that have meaning and pleasure for the people who use them. Placemaking involves the participation and collaboration of the local community and considers the physical, cultural, and social aspects of a place. Placemaking aims to improve the quality of life, health, and well-being of people and places.

Placemaking is both an idea and a practical approach to transforming public spaces into vibrant and vital places that foster social interaction and connection, according to the Project for Public Spaces (PPS), one of the leading organizations promoting placemaking initiatives around the world. PPS has identified eleven key principles for placemaking, such as listening to the community, having a vision, experimenting, and being flexible.



Placemaking is a way of creating places that reflect the identity and aspirations of the people who live in them. It is a process that empowers people to shape their public realm and make it more enjoyable and meaningful for everyone.
