urban planning

Our method approaches the city from the citizen’s perspective and considers our shared dwellings as focus points of human interaction and social compromise. The collective memory of a location goes much farther than the people who inhabit it at the moment as the streets are engraved with the narratives of the past through architecture and usage. We record the human experience in urban planning to help you design human centric urban environments.


Examples of our services:


1. Our client was working on developing the city center to accommodate exponential population growth. One of the issues involved car parking in the downtown area. Our researchers tackled the change of urban culture in relation to parking lots and parking garages and expectations and experiences of drivers in the city through participant observation, interviews and opinion polling.
