People are prioritizing quality of place like never before. Thanks to groundbreaking research discoveries, we are learning more about what makes people love where they live and why it matters to the overall success of places. As a result, placemaking is experiencing a surge in popularity and utilization around the world. This talk will provide an overview of this renewed focus on place, research findings that forever changed the place conversation, and an introduction to placemaking as a framework for community vitality.
"The best ideas often come from the residents themselves, who are really the true keepers of the soul of their community." says Dr. Loflin. Often referred to as the City Doctor, Dr. Katherine Loflin has been a TEDx Speaker on Placemaking.
