Book review: connecting places, connecting people: a paradigm for urban living in the 21st century by Reena Tiwari (Routledge)
Taylor and Francis
Placemaking is being increasingly recognised as a strategy to improve the quality of urban public realm. Placemaking helps to build better communities with an important role to play in achieving sustainable urban development. According to the Project for Public Spaces (2007), strengthening the connection between people and the places they share is central to placemaking. Although there is heaps of literature available on placemaking, this core idea of placemaking has not been covered so much in research. Reena Tiwari’s Connecting Places, Connecting People is a timely response to this need.
