Places people love: that’s the goal of placemaking. Placemakers create public spaces that inspire; that bring us together, make us happier and healthier, and give us a strong sense of identity. And they’re not just good for people – vibrant public spaces are good for business and good for our planet, too.
That’s why Think City and STIPO our proud to announce the first-ever Placemaker Week ASEAN! Co-presented with UN-Habitat, the region’s first event of its kind will take place in Malaysia from 4 to 8 November 2019.
Join the movers and shakers of Southeast Asian placemaking in Downtown Kuala Lumpur to hear inspiring case studies, exchange innovative best practices, and forge uplifting new connections with fellow placemakers.
With site visits to Klang, Penang, Putrajaya, and Johor Bahru, you’ll experience hands-on, practical learning tailored to the local cultural context and the unique challenges of Southeast Asia’s tropical climate.
Building on the momentum generated at Placemaking Week 2018 in Wuhan, China, Placemaker Week ASEAN 2019 will focus on three themes: Waterfronts, Historical Streets, and Healthy Communities.
In preparation to the Placemaker Week ASEAN we will create a new book and network: “The City at Eye Level Asia”. Check out this page for more information about the project.
