external factors influencing decision-making ensures that projects she works on are fit for the future.

The Routledge Handbook of Placemaking

In late 1972 William Whyte wrote an article “Please, just a nice place to sit” for the New York Times….

This is how Kylie Legge’s chapter ‘Public seating- small important places’ in this handbook begins. It is one of 45 chapters exploring the many facets of placemaking from the perspective of professionals and academics across the world. In the last 20 years, placemaking has seen a paradigmatic shift that has led urban design, planning and policy to engage the community and be open to more collaborative practice. The Handbook examines the development of placemaking, its emerging theories, and its future directions.
