By definition Placemaking is the art of capitalizing on a community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and well being. One might also argue, Placemaking increases quality of life and life experiences.
As Torti Gallas + Partners embarks on the next phase of our evolution, Architects of a Better World, featuring Placemaking as an expertise and added value to our communities, neighborhoods, cities, and our clients seems an appropriate response to our new brand position. Our core competencies center on betterment - from catalyst projects that transform entire neighborhoods and districts to thoughtful repair and densification of our first ring suburbs. Our cultural beliefs already align with Placemaking principles.
