What is Placemaking?

Placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and rebuild public spaces for the community. It helps strengthen the connection between people and the places they share. It also promotes better urban design and maximises shared value. It also uses creative patterns of use, paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place. Effective placemaking techniques can yield a number of benefits for communities of all shapes and sizes such as attracting talent, economic development and competitiveness and the design and use of the public realm.

PLACEMAKER AWARDS ASEAN 2021

Placemaker Awards ASEAN 2020/21 is the brainchild of Nextdor Property Communications, a placemaking consultancy and Think City, a social purpose organisation focused on urban rejuvenation.

True believers in the philosophy of placemaking, Nextdor and Think City came up with the idea of creating an avenue to showcase the best of placemaking projects and give due recognition to community building in the Southeast Asian region.

This is especially important given the rising rate of urbanisation within Southeast Asian cities.

Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces that create vibrant spaces that offer local stakeholders a sense of wellbeing, safety and comfort.

We take pride in promoting authentic efforts to improve the communities through the initiation of projects that add to the public realm and drive greater collaborations in the activation of spaces in where we live, work and play.

Judged solely by an independent panel of leading placemakers and programme partners, this platform serves as a guide to the community, developers or stakeholders as to the best placemaking practices. The award would also improve your exposure amongst the community, build brand awareness and enhance your growth potential.
