This is a well-produced edited series that takes another overview of the ever-advancing field of placemaking. The editors’ over-arching aim is to enhance the capacities and efficiencies of professionals, academics, and communities working in placemaking strategies, and to expand the practice. The need for a publication such as this, according to Hes and Hernandez-Santin, is evident from a research that showed theoretical knowledge of urban graduates is not adequately enriched with that of practical engagement in Australia.
