Active City Transformation


Active City Transformation (ACT) is not a traditional architecture, urban planning or landscape firm. Our interest lies in the development of projects that better integrate motion and activities into our daily experiences. Whether a project is big or small, permanent or temporary, ACT is interested in what design itself can do to help create attractive public spaces and environments, rich with events and activities. Believing that there are numerous undervalued, overlooked and underutilized opportunities to be exploited in the spaces we inhabit, we focus on the parameters and elements that create more active city spaces, neighborhoods and lifestyles, regardless of a project’s typology. ACT helps projects move beyond a well designed aesthetic framework by providing real strategies and models for activity zones and focusing on the design’s inherent potentials and abilities to move and be set in motion. Through a process of evidence based design, ACT possesses a critical understanding of the necessary design parameters and the process of selecting and planning for appropriate project activities. Drawing upon multiple sources of research, including our own, and experience with existing “active” projects, ACT works in tandem with engineers and other design professionals to produce overall design solutions for municipalities and private clients that provide quality results.
