Institutions are powerful city builders. Urban Strategies has a focus on campus design, planning & physical resource management for educational institutions. We understand the dynamics of change that this sector is facing. In our experience, successful campus planning goes beyond physical design to align trends in education delivery, demographics, and factors within the broader community, such as transportation and economic development. All of our work is grounded in the aspirations of the institutions we work with. We respect the values our clients bring to our process and our work “fits” within existing contexts. We align investment in infrastructure and new landscape to support a range of building opportunities. Most importantly, we create campuses that are beautiful, efficient, and can support an authentic sense of community and identity.
“Urban Strategies was extremely capable in their ability to manage the process and to develop sophisticated planning strategies that will transform the long-term future of the Princeton campus.”— Ron McCoy, FAIA, University Architect, Princeton University
