Markets & Expertise / Development & Regeneration / Cities

LDA Cities

There is no other human construct in history that is as complex and beguiling as the city; ever-changing and enduring. By 2050 more than 75% of the world’s population will live in cities. LDA Design is playing its part in helping cities in the UK and around the world adapt to a multiplicity of challenges from climate change to fluctuating economic cycles. We design and plan for change on behalf of our clients whether that it is  Government Agencies, City Authorities, Economic and Regeneration Partnerships, landowners, developers or the communities themselves and our work demonstrates how we can re-shape and in some cases remake cities for future generations.
