As part of the design team at Project for Public Spaces, Priti works on a variety of parks, plazas, downtowns, waterfronts and streets. Her design experience has exposed her to a wide array of disciplines that integrate science, art, and creativity through Placemaking. Her skills include using various community engagement tools to develop a place vision, and translating it into a concept and design. She joined PPS in 2007 as a project assistant for a new urban development in Dubai, UAE. She has most recently been involved in the re-imagination of Pershing Square in LA and the concept design and implementation of Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper efforts in Albuquerque, NM.

With a background in Environmental Planning and Design, and Landscape Architecture, Priti continues to address the sustainable redevelopment design of downtowns and  economic, cultural, ecological and social growth through Placemaking.

Prior to joining PPS, Priti worked with New York City Department of Parks and Recreation on capital projects for the city, assisting on site analyses, research and drafting.

At Rutgers University, her senior the­sis project involved the sustainable redevelopment design of downtown Paterson, New Jersey.
