Urban design, infrastructure and transport networks form the skeleton of our human settlements, and are critical to the livability of our communities. While many complex elements and technical issues have to be addressed, the need for efficiency and design quality on such projects requires focus on their civic and architectural qualities as well the engineering. Civic meeting places sustain local values and cultural aspirations that enhance the spirit of place necessary to help forge identity and spirit in communities, defining and strengthening public life in the wider matrix of open space and urban life. To generate robust, well integrated solutions, AJA works in collaborative ways with other professional disciplines fundamental to project resolution, and our range of skills can help create exemplary urban places and infrastructure that make significant contributions to the public realm.
