Economic development plays a major role in revitalizing neighborhoods by creating new opportunities for education, business development and job creation. Most large-scale development and redevelopment investments focus on exterior placemaking, however-people actually live, work, and learn inside these “places” i.e. buildings. Both interior and exterior space should be thought through in tandem as a source of energy, to boost community. Together they have the power to inspire people, in order to be a catalyst for trust and social impact. Sadly interior spaces are often ignored in upfront planning and development. When developers plan around people, not buildings, they are ragingly more successful. They create thriving hubs of opportunity where people want to be and result in projects that drive economic development, promote growth and foster creativity. This lightning session will give you context for creating people-centered spaces that you can implement right away.
