Turning Spaces into Places – handbook

 As a complement to ‘A Guide to Managing Capital Investment Projects’, this handbook outlines key underlying design characteristics of ‘good public places’, by introducing some global concepts and local examples. It also certainly aims to stimulate discussion, generate ideas, collective thinking and raise awareness amongst decision-makers about place-making vs. space-maintaining. The handbook clearly explains what place-making is, and above all how place-making impacts people’s lives and how it can be achieved. The handbook develops some design principles and techniques and contains vibrant and inspiring examples triggered from CIPs implemented in partner MuSPP municipalities.
