Working with regions, cities and towns planning for people and places from vision and masterplan to design and delivery.
Cities are complex and dynamic social, economic and physical entities. Each place is unique and the way we design and plan urban places has a profound impact on people’s lives, society and the environment.
Our urbanism team embraces these challenges and responsibilities with a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach, engaging with cities, communities, developers and other stakeholders to inform decision making and to shape and deliver the places we live in.

We have launched an occasional series of urbanism bite-sized thought pieces, drawing on the opinions and expertise of all our urbanism teams in our studios around the world. We hope these will be a starting point for general discussion, a signpost for urban challenges and solutions and a platform for a diverse and sometimes provocative debate. You don’t need to be an qualified professional to join in - just curious and interested in the urban environment.
Our urbanism team operates as an independent consultancy. Here are some of the clients and partners with whom we have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
