World's Best People Places
Ever wonder what makes a place so great? There's much to be learned from existing places. We've joined up with two incredible place making organisations, Social Life and Street Plans, to find out where the best people places are around the world. Add your favourite places to the map and tell us what makes them great!

It is always exciting to see an idea come to life, and this is no different for us at Place Partners. In 2011, we worked with City of Canada Bay to develop the Drummoyne Village Public Realm Concept Master Plan, in partnership with Spackman, Mossop and Michaels.
The act of revitalisation is generally considered only necessary where there has been failure - if an area has been allowed to degenerate physically, economically and socially.
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.Launch
