The Placemakers | A Legacy to Mr Lett

David Lett, a placemaking visionary, was a key player in the market positioning and development of The Placemakers, having worked closely with Eddie our Head of Placecrafting for many years.

With great sadness, David passed away before we were able to launch, while we are upset that he won’t be part of the driving force behind this unique proposition, we are keen to ensure we continue to deliver with the same heart and passion to honour his legacy.

For those that knew David, you will be aware that his enthusiasm for place and commitment to design were innate, and that desire, together with the full force of
the team around him led to the birth of The Placemakers. We are missing a valuable professional and friend as we move forward, but know the ideas and drive behind
David are now part of our psyche as we progress.

David had decades of experience under his belt, delivering destination branding, environmental design, master planning solutions, and place making projects for retail, mixed use developers and funds across Europe, Africa and MENA. These case histories are part of The Placemakers’ heritage, inspiring our teams to listen, challenge, collaborate and deliver exceptional quality, time and time again.
