Placemaking connects people with the public spaces around them.
Put simply, placemaking is a process - it connects a community with their built environment. Every community in New Zealand is unique, and placemaking recognises and celebrates that diversity.
Placemaking is a bottom-up approach to urban design and community development. It ensures people feel comfortable in the public spaces they use, by involving them in the research and design process. Placemaking can be seen in many parts of a town or city - from buildings and sidewalks to parks and gardens.
