The Place-Making cluster explores the diverse elements that make, unmake and remake place.  Students in this cluster take up this question through a variety of disciplines and entry points, including social space, material space, visual space and mental space, as well as the role of art, community, the built environment, deconstruction, affect and power and how they intersect within place.  The cluster is motivated by the question, what constitutes “place” and what does it actually hold together?
