Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, Masters, Urban Placemaking and Management

Placemaking program sees the creation of successful public spaces as the starting point, which in turn dictates the siting and design of other components of the urban fabric.
Placemaking approaches public space from a people perspective—based on community needs and programming. It incorporates a wide variety of professional and technical skills such as community building, economics, sustainability, management, urban design, and landscape design. “Placemakers” need to understand the role that each of these disciplines plays in creating and maintaining successful public spaces and be able to manage the process of placemaking. Case studies of successful public spaces demonstrate the importance of placemaking in supporting successful communities and in the livability and health of a city.
