Sex in the City
When people think about cities they often focus on the component parts that make up the city fabric - like streets,buildings, cafes, buses, and traffic.
At Place Laboratory when we think about cities, we don’t just see the building blocks we see all the places that make people feel welcome.At Place Laboratory when we think about cities, we don’t just see the building blocks we see all the places that make people feel welcome.
We see the in-between, the intimate, and the special spaces and places that make people feel connected. Put simply we see the place and the stories people bring to the city as an intertwined whole.
Spaces filled with people, spaces that are lively and enjoyable - these are the key to a great city. They bring the city to life and make it a place we all want to visit and live.
But what makes a great place?
What attracts people?
What is its point of difference?
What will make people feel welcome?
What makes them stay longer?
How can public space be enjoyable?
How can public space be for everyone, regardless of age, culture, and circumstance?
And what will they do while they are in the space?
Responding to these questions is what we call ‘place activation’ - the process of putting people first and actively engaging them in the symphony of city life.

It is important to get the evidence and tools into the hands of those who design and build our communities.
Healthy Active by Design (HABD) is a web-based urban planning tool launched in Western Australia in February 2014.
It was developed in partnership by the Heart Foundation with key Government Departments of Planning, Transport, Sport and Recreation and Health, and other key professional stakeholders including the University of Western Australia’s Centre for Built Environment and Health.
HABD aims to provide guidance and advocate for environments that encourage people to be more active and to be healthy.
The online resources provide planners and related professionals and groups with online flexible guidance and tools to assist in how to integrate health considerations into master planning and design processes.
The HABD tool provides
(1) the latest scientific evidence
(2) practical guidance on how to implement
(3) quick links to policy
(4) examples and case studies
(5) user friendly tools and check lists.

Future Bayswater: Future Vision
What is wanted? A livable, vibrant and connected Town Centre.
Why? To become a "go-to" destination rather than a "go through" in desperation.
How to do this? By supporting a comprehensive Future Vision via an Activity Centre Plan.
Why Bayswater? It's a strategic inner urban hub that hasn't realised its full potential ... yet.
