As part of the design team at Project for Public Spaces, Priti works on a variety of public spaces including parks, plazas, downtowns, waterfronts and streets. Her education and 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 in graphic design, Priti works primarily in the concept and 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 spaces surrounding the Museum of Art & History in Santa Cruz  as well as the implementation of Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper efforts in Detroit and San Antonio.

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 which promoted economic, cultural, ecological and so­cial growth through Placemaking.
