Why Place Matters

Torhild Eide Torgersen, an artist from Norway, drew “Why Place Matters” during Richard’s recent speech in Larvik. What do you think of her interpretation?

    Place matters and yet for different people very differently as they have very personal experience what makes THIS place special.

    Diagnosing the status-quo is good, working on how it can be changed could be interesting as well.

    i thought this interpretation was very brilliant especially since planners ARE visual (creative) people and this totally helped explain the concepts of the speech

    A great way to capture the essence, and Torhild really did it here. Visual and artistic yet enough information present to get the points of the subject. Good job!

    It gives a lot of meaning to harvest the fruits of the conversation that way. Very inspiring! And visually beautiful work she has done!

    There’s a pamphlet published by The Solace Foundation Imprint called “Prosperity, People and Place” available here:,%20people%20and%20place.pdf

    that some of you may find vaguely interesting.

    WOW! I wasn’t there, so I can’t comment on the interpretation, but it looks fantastic and is easy to fellow. Nice work.

    Really nice with the drawings. Maybe that should have been the cover for “the creative class”. Excellent!
