Given our founder’s research experience in community development and urban planning, designing and implementing research tools and methodologies is an integral part of our creative process. For example, we design Post-Occupancy Evaluations and apply learnings from client experiences to our ongoing design projects in the studio.
Further, we are in the process of drafting new research projects that are focused on bringing the concept of child-friendly cities to Pune. If you would like to collaborate with us on research-related work, then get in touch with us.
