Placemaking is context dependent and human scaled. Examples: a district or neighborhood with clear identity and walkability; a gateway node along a district edge or corridor; a region-scale experience; a mental map reinforced by wayfinding elements, public art and a landscape continuum. Placemaking is sustainable and in synergy with parallel systems and infrastructure. The work of the storrow|kinsella studio is the creation of exceptional places, the shaping of their larger context and the affecting of their multimodal connections as relational systems.
