Placemaking innovation has a deep heritage in San Francisco. Starting with Parklets and Pavement to Parks, the San Francisco Planning Department has forged precedent-setting partnerships to develop and expand Placemaking methods and outcomes. Collaborations began first between government departments and design professionals. Recently, new partnerships between government and cultural institutions – both of which have missions of serving and stewarding public space and public life – have rapidly expanded both the engagement of and impact to neighborhoods and communities. This emerging and evolving practice in San Francisco maximizes the collective potential of design professionals, technical experts, and everyday citizens; allowing for deeper penetration and nurturing of the grassroots. Having pioneered a number of placemaking techniques since replicated in cities across the country and world, the City of San Francisco plays a critical role in Placemaking experimentation and innovation. At the same time, the City of San Francisco continues to learn from the tactics of other Cities; synthesizing a dynamic practice with limitless frontiers for partnership. Come interact with practitioners in the architecture, urban planning, and arts arenas who are all pioneering placemaking collaborations in San Francisco.
