"Placemaking is like turning a house into a home."

Placemaker leader, David Engwicht

Placemaking is a philosophy and an iterative, collaborative process for creating public spaces that people love and feel connected to.

Placemaking is a mindset, an attitude that brings people together to create positive changes in a place or area. It aims to improve not only the physical elements of a space, but also the way people think about and connect with the world around them.
