Unter dem Begriff „Placemaking“ versammeln sich Ideen und Ansätze verschiedener und ineinander übergreifender Fachrichtungen mit dem Ziel, Plätze für Menschen und nicht nur für Autos oder Einkaufszentren wahrzunehmen, weiterzudenken und auszugestalten. Es geht darum, Lebensräume zu erschaffen. Und darum öffentliche Orte und Plätze als Begegnungs- und Nutzungsorte für die Anwohner:innen zugänglich zu machen und die soziale und kulturelle Identität eines Ortes auszuschöpfen. Also im Grunde die Kunst to create together with the citizens of a city good places for the people living in a city....

We collect here individual projects for you and us, which carry this thought and which are based on "Placemaking". We create these projects because we are convinced that a city can only become a city for all through the involvement of all citizens, which may be given expression and share.
