What We Do

We not only do urban design and strategic planning for old and new developments, but we also create strategies and unique partnerships to activate, nurture, and manage urban public space. We believe in the ability of urban space to become productive and performative, so that it generates exciting social experiences, and economic vitality, that positively impact the surrounding neighborhoods.
