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

Learning Hub

  • Revitalisation is the purpose of many projects we are currently working on and therefore the subject of much research and debate in the office. What exactly is revitalisation, and how does it differ from urban renewal or regeneration? Importantly how does place making fit in to the story?
  • Place making can be defined as a collaborative process of creating environments that people are attracted to, and have ownership of. But what happens if the community doesn’t have the capacity (ability, time and/or interest), to get involved in the first place?

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.
