Reimagined Worlds: Narrative Placemaking for People, Play, and Purpose (Paperback)
In Reimagined Worlds: Narrative Placemaking for People, Play, and Purpose, Margaret Chandra Kerrison presents an indispensable manifesto, compelling designers of environments and experiences to embrace a people-centered approach fueled by intentional narratives. This thought-provoking book delves into the realm of uncharted possibilities, envisioning a world that fosters a deep sense of belonging and authentic self-expression.

Through this narrative lens, she encourages us to imagine and build a world we truly desire to inhabit, one that thrives on collaboration and purposeful living.
