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.

The Placemaking Network is part of the Urban Design Commission.
Previous Urban Design Committee lectures have addressed traffic planning and innovative street design, the relationship between industrial sites and the natural landscape, Boston’s ambiguous relationship with the skyscraper, and more. 2013 brings more engaging topics; stay tuned for details, and remember to RSVP.
