The urban design team applies a holistic approach to the study of the city, exploring patterns of behavior, demographics and the hidden systems that influence the built environment, from the property market to underground infrastructure. The team draws on an extensive body of data to inform the design process.
We invert the traditional planning process in relation with the eclipse of the physical design, geometric, volumetric, as a target in itself and the inspiration of the designing of public spaces as a sensitivity to social coexistence, groundwork of the creation of the urban centers. People, life and vitality are the main recipient in the collective life. We see this trinomial where people choose to meet, to sit, to have a coffee, to talk. Social life is the most important quality in designing, not only when it comes specifically to a road, but also in its complexity, merged in wider urban contexts, as part of the thorough organization of the city. The problems of daily life are exactly related with the urban environment where people live and the quality of the urban environment depends on vitality, which the designer manages to produce through urban choosing-solutions.
By analyzing trends influencing cities today, DEA Studio urban designers assist private clients and public institutions to create sustainable developments for the future.
