WHAT IS PLACEMAKERS?
WHAT IS PLACEMAKERS?

Placemakers is an interdisciplinary and creative team for urban activation. We work to create inclusive and lively urban spaces. Through research, workshops, small experiments and integrated strategies we co-develop places with residents, entrepreneurs and other local parties.

EXEMPLARY PROJECTS
De Buurtcamping Neighborhood Campsite
Entrance_3 Minecraft Community Workshop

Placemakers aims to improve public spaces by co-envisioning and co-creating with the neighborhood – in the Netherlands, Kenya and beyond. For example by organizing an event such as ‘De Buurtcamping’ (The Neighborhood Campsite) or by adopting Minecraft as a participatory planning strategy for development of a ‘Model Street’.

METHOD

Using the method of Placemaking we invigorate neighborhood networks based on their own strength. Through various steps we provide local stakeholders with the necessary tools to develop their own neighborhood:

LOCATION RESEARCH

Socio-spatial research: what are the intrinsic qualities of the neighborhood?

WORKSHOPS

Bringing ideas from and for the neighborhood together

INTERVENTIONS

From a physical design to an event

TRANSFER

Stakeholders receive the tools to continue development of their public spaces
