Priti assists on a variety of urban planning and Placemaking projects at PPS. Her education and work experience have exposed her to a wide array of disciplines that integrate science and art through planning. With previous project experience in community development strategies, as well as advanced knowledge in computer aided graphics, Priti works primarily in the design development of PPS projects. 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 conceptual design for the Common Spaces at Harvard University and the public activation plans for the Fulton Street Transit Center in New York City. Her technical and graphic skills combined with her interest in urban revitalization provide a strong foundation for 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. As a student, she also acquired skills in graphic design as a freelance designer.
At Rutgers University, her senior thesis project involved the sustainable redevelopment design of downtown Paterson, New Jersey which promoted economic, cultural, ecological and social growth through Placemaking.
