The Digital City

The case study in chapter 5 investigates practices related to re-placeing the city from the perspective of those who professionally program and fund placemaking activities in the United States and of the locals who receive this funding and support. The chapter explores the role and potential of digital technologies and practices in creative placemaking efforts. Through an investigation of organizations, artists, and cities that have undertaken creative placemaking projects, the author evaluates the ways in which digital technologies and practices are imagined and implemented in order to “animate public and private spaces, rejuvenate structures and streetscapes, improve local business and public safety, and bring diverse people together to celebrate and inspire.” In addition, the chapter offers reasons that digital technologies and practices are not being associated with and incorporated into creative placemaking endeavors.
