Placemaking

Art Programs and Community Landmarks that Connect People to Place

Placemaking is a detailed and articulate approach to planning, designing, and managing public spaces. Connecting people to place through the use of subtle design moves that suggest use and create collaboration between people. Placemaking and public art serve as a powerful combination that welcomes visitation, engagement, and joy from a fresh perspective. Creative placemaking puts an emphasis on design which cultivates the social experience in the built environment. Public art adds an element of whimsy and delight, which upon discovery allows people to connect and remember a place in a personal way.

RSM Design develops graphic & architectural elements that add to place and tell a story. It’s important to pull from the local community’s distinct story in order to connect their purpose to the environment. We work with artists to curate moments of discovery. Placemaking is the sophisticated pathway to the design and planning of public spaces. Placemaking is the sophisticated pathway to the design and planning of public spaces.
