The Art of Place-making Creating cities for the future
By Gordon Hatton
As an architect and an urban real estate developer, how to create city spaces with a unique spirit of place is something I spend considerable time thinking about.
In an age when we have a propensity for classifying, we speak of gateway cities, Tier-2 livable cities, smart cities, sustainable cities, innovation hubs, or centers of media concentration, and we look to studies such as the Global Power City Index to understand, define, and rank their importance. While these evaluations do not specifically consider blockbuster events, such as the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, these milestones can signal the repositioning of a city’s image.
