What activities would attract you to visit and spend time in a place?

Learning Hub

  • We are seeing not only the rise of professional place making but also that of communal or community led place making – what we at Place Partners have termed 'Collaborative Urbanism'. If you love cities and want to get involved in making them better places for people, it seems this is the right time for you – as it is for us.
  • So we've done chess, snakes and ladders, checkers and even badminton, so its no surprise we like these cool all weather all purpose ping pong tables - get one in your neighbourhood!

World's Best Places

With urban populations growing steadily, public spaces, particularly those that are great for people, are rising in emotional, physical and economic value. We want to capture what makes these people places so great so that everyone can learn from them. Tell us what makes these places work while others flounder... What is the big, or small attraction? Why do they feel comfortable? Or exciting? Or relaxed? What are the key learnings that could be applied to new places or those being improved or even completely redesigned?

This database is open to everyone to contribute to and share so please participate by adding your favourite place, making a comment on one of the places already here or even just giving a place the thumbs up.
