13/50. HTA at 50 - Placemaking

Wikipedia credits hta’s founding partner, Bernard Hunt, with coining the term #Placemaking. One of the practice’s clients defined it as the art of the ‘sustainable and everlastingly sybaritic’. Jane Jacobs and Jan Gehl proselytized it. Now the phrase is so commonplace no one hardly dares use it. But is there a better way to describe the art of making places where people want to be?
