Where evidence-based or data-driven design is meant to be the core methodology for urban design, masterplanning or place-making, we provide advanced scientific spatial analysis and data modelling to generate the evidence. After 15 years of R&D for urban analytics, we offer a large toolbox of computational tools and when required, develop new data and analysis models for bespoke qualities and conditions.
We specialize in quantifying and assessing urban conditions that relate to space, use and perception. Specific models address urban design tasks such as
According to client brief, we combine and adjust our tools to build the most appropriate workflow to assess urban character and performances. Findings are visually compiled and numerically tabled into reports, videos and live interactive apps. From the findings we help to produce the design vision, quantify ranges for key performance indicators (KPIs) and define conceptual principles that inform the development brief. The models are then used to continuously assess the success of KPIs and principles throughout design iterations.
