Notice something different? PPS is thrilled to launch our new website.

Our goal in creating a new PPS.org was to provide an easier to use site and better showcase the services and extraordinary resources we have developed to help you in your work to transform your communities.

Our new site now offers major content organized according to our unique program areas prominently at the top.  We revamped our Resources section (at left) and curated some of our best articles under the “Placemaking Tools” category. Look no further if you want to know the key attributes of successful public spaces, the core principles of placemaking, or even tips on how to take good photos of public spaces.

The Resources section also has articles concerning specific spaces (i.e. streets, squares, waterfronts), along with Great Public Spaces and the Image Database.

The PPS blog is the place to share and discuss the latest news on placemaking around the globe, see updates on PPS projects, profiles of placemakers, photo essays and more.

Our ongoing vision is to make this digital place the Town Square of Placemaking. Your thoughts are invaluable in this effort, so please leave feedback on the site using the “Feedback” widget on the left side of the screen. We look forward to hearing from you!
