Have you heard the term placemaking? Ever wonder what it means?

In this class, you’ll learn the origins of placemaking as a concept and social movement, and we’ll review the fundamentals of this interdisciplinary practice. We’ll also do a site-specific exercise in the park.

The following week, we’ll dive deeper into placemaking case studies in an optional second class: Placemaking in Practice. Please register separately to attend that class as well.
