Summary This chapter describes a process (i.e. placemaking) and the principles one may use when attempting to transform existing and new settings into positive contributions within the urban environment. It does this by introducing a number of early approaches intended to improve the 'setting' in which people live. Following this introduction, I will give a brief conceptual framing of placemaking and highlight the source of inspiration for the chapter's concluding placemaking principles. A detailed discussion of placemaking and its attributes leads to a series of concluding remarks that are intended to fully embrace the process of placemaking and to guard against token efforts when attempting to develop good urban places.
