Placemaking Network / back to Committee page »

Welcome to the BSA’s Placemaking Network! We are dedicated to interdisciplinary dialogue and education about an integrated public realm. Programs include monthly seminars and project-based initiatives on the subject of Placemaking. Presentations by noted speakers and discussions focus on what makes public spaces successful. We examine how architects, landscape designers, urban planners, artists and public officials work together to create great public places, to turn space into place.
