We can help building managers, property owners, and the larger community to build a vision for transforming its public realm, using techniques such as time-lapse filming, observations, and specially designed surveys to analyze how people actually use public space.

The end product is typically a concept/vision for a place that outlines the issues, makes recommendations, and suggests a strategy for the next steps. Recommendations include small-scale, easily implemented improvements that quickly enhance the social and economic vitality of public spaces.

Specific components of the process include:

  • Analyzing the problems of the space
  • Setting objectives
  • Site observations and documentation
  • User interviews and on-site behavioral analysis
  • Literature research
  • Community visioning and public forums
  • Management programs for the space (e.g.: events programming, maintenance, security, retail planning)
