Connecting People, Place and Design examines the human relationship with place, how its significance has evolved over time, and how contemporary systems for participation shape the places around us in our daily lives. Divided into three parts—place, people, and participation—this interdisciplinary volume examines people, place, and design across the fields of architecture, design, cultural studies, sociology, political science, and philosophy.

Part I, on place, considers the cultural, political, and philosophical shifts in our historical relationship to place. Part II, on people, considers movement and migration and how it affects place relations. Part III, on participation, examines forms of public engagement and cultural systems for collaborative contribution to the design and creation of place. Improving people’s relationships with place requires connection, and in Connecting People, Place and Design, Edmonds demonstrates the importance of connection, underscoring that working together to nurture and sustain places that celebrate the diversity of our human species is one of the most critical issues of our time.
