Human Scale Studio



Human Scale Studio is an internationally recognized urban strategy firm working to reimagine how planning and development get done by putting people first.  We provide people-centric solutions to cities, neighborhoods, and businesses.

We allow the shapers of the urban world  to better understand where cities are heading and how people want to live in them. With methodologies ranging from future-casting, community planning, and design research, Human Scale Studio is a strategic consultancy like no other.  We are equally equipped to strategize in the board room as we are to activate in the street.

We work with people and organizations across the spectrum of influence to build places and policies that value humanism, beauty, and the commons.
