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.
Join us for a thought-provoking and inspiring discussion with Michael Mehaffy, author of Design for a Living Planet, who will be joined by Jennifer Light, MIT professor of science, technology and society, and author of The Nature of Cities.
This event is co-sponsored by the Committee on Resilient Environments (CORE), the Committee on the Environment (COTE) and the Foundation for Modern Architecture
