The Art of Placemaking 

Theoretically, anything can be branded whether it is a product, service, person, event, organization, or a place. Due to the emergence of mobile devices and social media, our societies have become unprecedentedly hyper-connected. As the exchange of diversity and individualities are becoming more acceptable and proven to promote creativity in our societies, the needs for branding(designing) places where people live and interact holistically with each other plays a vital role in our generation.

What is placemaking?¬†I believe that placemaking is the process of improving and promoting better urban service design for the people living in the specific community. Based on the community-centric approach, placemaking process focus on capitalizing assets, inspiration, and potential of the community in order to create the quality public spaces that cultivate people’s health, happiness, and well-being. Project for Public Spaces (www.pps.org) refers placemaking to ‘a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm in order to maximize shared value’. In my own definition, placemaking is an interdisciplinary and integrative practice of optimizing borderless new ideas and essential theories to satisfy constantly changing needs of different individuals within our community.
