The Routledge Handbook of Placemaking
This handbook is the first to explore the emergent field of "placemaking" in terms of the recent research, teaching and learning, and practice agenda for the next few years. Offering valuable theoretical and practical insights from the leading scholars and practitioners in the field, it provides cutting-edge interdisciplinary research on the placemaking sector.
Placemaking has seen a paradigmatic shift in urban design, planning and policy to engage the community voice. This handbook examines the development of placemaking, its emerging theories and its future directions. The book is structured in seven distinct sections curated by experts in the areas concerned.
This seminal handbook offers a timely contribution and international perspectives for the growing field of placemaking. It will be of interest to academics and students of placemaking, urban design, urban planning and policy, architecture, geography, cultural studies and the arts.
