““Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”
We have experience with projects on liveable, resilient, smart, sustainable and child-friendly cities. We have a strong grounding in placemaking approaches and an interest in innovative utilisation of public space. We are also interested in how the middle to outer suburbs of cities can be made more sustainable and revitalised.
Often our work on cities requires descriptive statistical analysis of demographic change, labour market and industry change and patterns of journeys to work.
Our work on cities always involves talking with people. Sometimes a combination of interviews, focus groups, group facilitation of workshops and specialist methods (especially when we are talking with children) are required to do the truly consultative work that needs to be done to deliver on projects and gain community buy-in.
