The term “placemaking” was coined in the 1960s as a call to center the needs of people in the design of cities. “Placekeeping” has risen in its wake, expanding this idea to include participatory community engagement and preservation of existing public spaces and cultures.

In this issue, we delve into the forces that shape “phygital” design.
