In a perfect world, placemaking could occur chronologically, in order with all the relevant tools listed in order for when to apply to your project – from inception of the project all the way to completion and upkeep. Of course, this is not how our public space projects develop, as much as we would like them to! Rather, the steps or phases, and thus the related tools in which to apply, are iterative with tiptoes forward, leaps ahead, backtracks, and repeats of these steps based on your unique context, resources, team, etc. Ultimately, all these steps listed below ought to be included in a quality placemaking strategy, regardless of the order and repetitions right for you and your team. We hope these steps guide you through your own work in a logical, progressive, adaptable and enjoyable way. Click on the boxes to explore further!
