Smarter Cities

Urban, Residential, Hotel, Retail, Culture, Sport, Infrastructure, Learning/Institution.

Within ”Smarter Cities”, we work with urbanization and development in our society. Debate is focused around how technology and supply services to our ever-growing cities can be more intelligent and fully integrated in one big network – “A smart city”. Our role in relation to this is to determine how architecture can positively change and contribute to urban life at a time when people continue to gravitate to major cities, far from the nature that biologically nurtures us. Our cities must be a positive legacy for future generations. Daily, we work with the idea of how 1 +1 can become 3, for example, by combining infrastructure and climate projects, so we not only achieve mobility is a sustainable way, but also create nature in the city.

Over the decades, we have been involved in developing a rich and diverse range of award-winning commissions from well-known cultural destinations to sports stadiums, shopping centers, schools, residential projects, airports, motorways, light-rails, hotels and metro systems.

Often, it is necessary to manage the involvement of a complex web of stakeholders, and we are recognized as experts in this area. We maintain focus on the human experience of the architecture, whilst we simultaneously balance commercial, public, and political interests. Through our targeted and specialized methodologies, we advise and guide institutions, investors, tenants, and owner-occupiers through an innovative and intelligent design process.
