Oh what a year! A balance of inspiration and challenge has seen the team at Place Partners ready for our holiday break before the start of 2011 and whatever it will bring. 2010 has been a great year and we have had the opportunity to work on some fantastic projects in some great places around Australia.
Kylie was asked to be a guest on Dubai Eye 103.8 to discuss place making in the UAE. The conversation focussed on place making, its role in inner city revitalisation and relevance to the UAE.
We have been active in our own community, participating in world PARK(ing) Day and installing a book share in an underutilised and vacant space. These efforts highlight the potential of collaborative urbanism.
Another great and fabulous year for Place Partners and I hope for you all also. This issue focuses what community building is, how we are doing it, as well as a wrap up of the year.

Welcome to the second issue of our quarterly newsletter, and thank you for all the great feedback we received from the inaugural issue. We will continue to endeavour to not only share our news but also stories from the international place making front, new research, inspiration, processes and projects.
There is always the opportunity to celebrate change, whether big or small. Place Partners has been enjoying seeding some of this change, working with great clients on challenging projects that have demanded new ways of thinking and certainly needing a fresh eye in finding solutions.
Revitalisation is the purpose of many projects we are currently working on and therefore the subject of much research and debate in the office. What exactly is revitalisation, and how does it differ from urban renewal or regeneration? Importantly how does place making fit in to the story?

It is always exciting to see an idea come to life, and this is no different for us at Place Partners. In 2011, we worked with City of Canada Bay to develop the Drummoyne Village Public Realm Concept Master Plan, in partnership with Spackman, Mossop and Michaels.
