Making of the Bard Master Plan
Olin, Room 102

Pippa Brashear, SCAPE Landscape Architecture
Placemaking approaches planning and design from the perspective of people and place. “Placemakers” work closely with communities and stakeholders to analyze their needs, and interpret the environment through the lens of their relationship to it. Placemakers then help identify and visualize design solutions to meet those needs within the specific context of that place—where “place” encompasses not only the built and natural environment but also the social, cultural, and economic context. Successful placemaking requires the coordination of a broad set of professions, including architecture, planning, urban design, landscape architecture, engineering, and economic analysis. The Bard Master Plan and the Kingston Riverport Master Plan are two successful plans that will demonstrate the importance of community-based placemaking.
