We are big data
at a human scale.

You're in good company.

We don’t look like an architecture studio, but we believe in human-centered design. We don’t look like a construction firm, but we build cities. 

We don’t look like a tech startup, but we’re innovators. We don’t look like a research company, but we’re deep in big data. We don’t look like an urban planning agency, but we develop thriving communities. We don’t look like a psychologist’s practice, but we are experts in interpreting human behaviour. We don’t look like a design studio, but we are organizers of information. 

We are something new. 

We balance big data with human-centered insights, thriving cities with community building, the built environment with human stories, networks with relationships, and place-making with storytelling. We are a balance of analysis and empathy.

“We uncover the human insights within big data to inform cities in the creation and development of people-centric places.”
