Abstract
Placemaking is a relatively new field of study in planning and design. As such, theorists and practitioners have not been able to reach consensus on a single, common definition or understanding of what placemaking is. This presentation shows a first attempt at exploring a possible new theory of placemaking which integrates many of the existing views on the subject into a more comprehensive model of placemaking. Through an analysis of the historical case study of the Hispanic Monarchy, and a review of contemporary projects and efforts, the paper draws applicable lessons that can help planners, architects, and urban designers be more intentional about creating meaningful places for people.
