Placemakers is a group of young architects, designers and sociologists, who set up community projects with people on site in various locations. Placemakers aims at social and physical development of areas by encouraging local, creative ideas and connecting different stakeholders; Placemakers can be seen as a chain between ‘users’ and ‘planners’. The outcomes of the process will be ‘translated’ into concrete possibilities for developers so that these places can grow more in line of people’s desires and ways of living.
Placemakers stands for the stimulation of an active and joint bottom-up process with a focus on small-scale initiatives, as essential, innovative approach to the revitalize public space in different phases of urban development; during planning, (re)designing and the management phase. At a local level Placemakers initiates projects to achieve physical output to encourage the relationship between LOCATION - ACTION - CREATION.
