Placemaking is a transformative process, an invitation to make the most of public spaces in our towns and cities. We believe this requires extensive consultation, a willingness to collaborate with others, an ability to engage and, ultimately, a vision of what public spaces could and should be like. To this end we have worked to make public spaces the heart of our housing developments, re-imagined seaside promenades for the 21st century, created temporary spaces that have become a focus of fun and wonder, and offered a radical solution to inner-city housing, where the city takes to the water.
