Sustainable Urbanism

Banyoles Old Town Refurbishment

We focus on the environmental, social and economic sustainability of cities through critical scholarship and well-researched design propositions. Our urban thinking is questioning, provocative and imaginative. It engages with tactical and participatory master-planning, ethical regeneration, urban heritage, community, public space and everyday urban life.

While London itself constitutes a key area of research, we increasingly develop research projects and collaborations that address a variety of places across the globe. Recent projects tackle issues of sanitation, food resources, colonialism and postcolonialism, disputed and conflicted regions in the Middle East, and the overall problematics of globalization.
