cities…to unlock the fullest potential of Earth’s great cities and other urban places… and citizens…for everyone who lives, works, strives and dreams in them.
What we do
We apply the toolkit and mindset of user-centered interaction design to the specific problems of cities. Through the design of products, services, interfaces, and spatial interventions, we aim to make cities easier to understand, more pleasant to use and live in, and more responsive to the desires of their inhabitants.
Who we are
We are a New York City-based urban systems design practice — urbanists, interaction designers, cartographers, graphic designers, interface specialists and software developers united by a deep love for big-city life, and the conviction that our efforts can help make it better still.
