Our Team

Place Partners is an extremely proficient team of collaborators who work together to ensure the successful delivery of each and every project. Our expertise is born from formal education in architecture, planning and urban design however our experience covers much more including marketing, project management, events, graphic design, retail and landscape design.

Just as each place is unique so are its needs. For each project we work on we put together a team that best meets its particular requirements, either from within or through an alliance with our network of collaborators who are all experts in their chosen field backed by an exception body of work.


 

Victoria Petrovsky

Place Maker

Victoria has always been interested in what makes a good city. She was born in a little village in Kolyma and grew up in a big city in America. Victoria has human ecologies and built environment everywhere from one of the oldest universities in Europe to a consciousness-based university in the middle of the American breadbasket, to a design school in midtown Manhattan. To this day her curiosity comes from wanting to understand psychogeographic dimensions of urban life in the age of rapid, massive change and unprecedented global interconnectivity.
