What is placemaking? Definition, examples and a podcast


In his podcast City Life Urbanistica, Mustafa Sherif, an urban planner and podcaster, explores what creates life in our cities by sharing stories from different actors and places. In January 2020, our urban strategist and placemaking expert Elise Perrault was invited to take part in his episode about placemaking.

Listeners can hear what placemaking is on theory and how it has been applied? Who can be part of it? What are the key principles of placemaking as a method to develop the city and create communities. Among others, Elise shares experience from projects with Anna Sommardal and others.

We hope you find it interesting and we thanks Mustafa Sherif for the invitation and the inspiring work.

The podcast is available on Spotify:
