Placemaking is a grassroots design approach that uses extensive community engagement. We hope to create public spaces reflecting community\ values, needs, and dreams by recognizing the value of local knowledge. Pratt Placemaking students were invited by RISE Rockaway to study public space in their neighborhood. Urban Placemaking and Management students connected with the Edgemere community as they collected qualitative and quantitative information to create recommendations for implementable change.
