If we view our modern society as one which is
ever growing and increasingly becoming more urban, then it is progressive to
study the way individuals and groups live in these societies and the connections
that they create. A deeper dive into the research of this area will allow a
more profound understanding about what is happening – utilising tools like symbolic
interactionism (Lee, 1990). The planner is
sometimes described as a ‘placemaker’ and it is the public who are experiencing
what they create, therefore the gap between these two needs to be bridged and
could potentially be viewed from a single perspective.
