Project description

In the framework of the 100 villages program of the Albanian government, superwien urbanism ZT OG will support the Albanian Territorial Planning Agency with knowledge about placemaking and techniques of civic engagement in urban planning. Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well-being.
