As a key member of the design team, 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. Since then, she has worked on the design development of public spaces in a range of contexts. She has most recently been involved in the public engagement process for the re-imagination of  public spaces in downtown Eugene, OR, developing a vision for Pershing Square in LA, the concept design and implementation of Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper efforts in Albuquerque, NM, the programming plans for Crystal City in Arlington, VA and the concept design of the grounds surrounding the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Ft. Worth, TX.

With a background in 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.
