We know that each neighborhood in Arlington has a certain feel. There may be a particular look or brand tied to an area, and that is no accident. Items like banners, benches, and even trashcans can help create a feeling in a public space. This process is known as placemaking, and it is a multifaceted process of creating an identity for a location. 

In this episode, Tina Leone chats with Stephanie Pankiewicz, a  Partner and Landscape Architect with LandDesign. We'll learn which components designers consider when creating a placemaking plan, how great design can impact human behavior, and how placemaking could be permanently changed by the pandemic.
