Seeking a better public realm, I work with urban planners and designers, architects and landscape architects, artists and curators.

I investigate the best of cultural infrastructure worldwide  and bring my research findings to government and development clients in Australia.

When I’m successful, people’s experience of their environment increases their well-being, facilitates social contact, supports economy and builds cultural capital.

I blog and speak about urban development’s impact on culture.
