WHO IS PLACE COLLECTIVE?

Place Collective is the collaboration of a series of locally and globally recognised consultants who are concerned with urbanism and the creation of great places.

The various members of Place Collective draw upon decades of experience in a wide variety of disciplines ranging from urban design & strategy, place making, community consultation, urban economics, sustainability, digital branding, spatial & environmental planning and landscape architecture.

With this diverse skill set we have a holistic understanding of the urban system as being made up of both human and natural processes. We believe that great places, and great cities, maintain a productive and fluctuating interchange between the apparently opposing systems of human and natural processes. This ultimately leads towards the creation of diverse and resilient urban places.

This understanding of the urban system has allowed us to develop a unique approach to Place Making which stems from our proficiency in urban & ecological analysis, community consultation, creating innovative business models and project administration. Our approach to these processes allows us to facilitate communities towards the collective design and re-establishment of the 'genius loci' (the defining essence) of their place. The result is a place that draws upon the local environmental and social resources, leading towards a democratic (formed by the public) and ecologically regenerative (creating [rather than sustaining] biodiversity) form of urbanism.

WHAT IS
PLACE MAKING?

Place Making is the process of creating vibrant and resilient local places which prove to be regenerative assets for the wider city-system.

It involves a multidisciplinary approach to the development and revitalisation of communities and the public realm. This approach considers the impacts of global trends, but reinforces and utilises the local assets of a place, reflecting the needs and aspirations of the public.

The ultimate result of a Place Making approach is the portrayal of the inherent 'genius loci' of a particular location - its unique story.

Place Making has arrived as a new key discipline in response to traditional "top-down" implemented urban design – characterised by the master plan. In contrast to this, Place Making is characterised by a local community driven "bottom-up" approach, which seeks to enhance the existing social glue within communities – encouraging them to come together towards a common vision of a resilient and diverse urbanism.

OUR APPROACH

Our strategy towards creating great places:

  • Biophysical and socio-cultural analysis of place
  • Place review to determine opportunities and constraints
  • Community engagement and consultation
  • Design and manage 'quick win' projects as urban catalysts
  • Create and market a valuable place brand and place promise
  • Establish and maintain collaborations between stakeholders to achieve collective ownership of the place
  • Improve infrastructure and create amenity
  • Create a framework from which government and the community can continue to manage the place.
