We explore cities in their complexity as interactive systems. Our research is directed towards what lies underneath the apparent urban order and makes each city quite different to every other; how does each city evolve; how can cities generate sustainable prosperity?
Our international programme of workshops and public events, brings together people and institutions who share a common interest in the city and its development; enabling public participation to become an active part in the urban development process.
We draw ideas for creating successful places that are environmentally and socio-economically sustainable. We see urban design right at the heart of urban societies and economies; a tool to create and redefine human interaction in urban space.
Each of our projects starts as a unique urban problem to resolve. Fusing expert research and public participation into the design process we provide innovative solutions addressing the socio-economic and environmental challenges our cities are facing.
