How to make a place around

A reference guidebook for all those involved in Placemaking.

Author: Project for Public Spaces (PPS)

Released: 2018

Project for Public Spaces (PPS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build strong communities. PPS is the central hub of the global placemaking movement, connecting people to ideas, resources, expertise, and partners who see place as the key to addressing our greatest challenges.

The Expanded Second Edition of PPS’s How to Turn a Place Around: When it was first released in 2000, this user-friendly guidebook helped launch the Placemaking Movement. It brought together PPS’s thirty years of community-driven observation and experimentation and turned it into a series of principles and practical tools for anyone to remake their public spaces. Along with a brand new design and vibrant color photos, this second edition adds new tools (like the Power of 10 exercise and Place Performance Game), inspiring new case studies, and a whole new section on how to run a successful placemaking process, from community engagement to creating a vision to implementation.
