Every great city has a prominent square or central public space that helps give it an identity and meaning for residents and visitors. But successful public places don’t just happen – they are products of clever creativity and good management.
The principle of ‘place making’ is about turning an area into a vibrant neighbourhood – the type of place that residents and visitors want to visit. It’s also about embracing ideas from the community to help shape the future.
Melbourne’s Federation Square and Sydney’s Darling Harbour are both prime examples of leading public places in Australia that are well managed, vibrant and dynamic.
Making places for people is a key part of MRA’s work to revitalise the Perth Cultural Centre.
All Western Australians are invited to rediscover the Perth Cultural Centre.
