Our Work: Built Environment

Imagine what you could do if you really knew people; if you truly understood how they behave, and why they do what they do. With that knowledge, you could create exceptional places, services and experiences.


At Public Research + Design, we shape strategy at the intersection of community, customers, innovation and design. Our work integrates human experience into the design and development process, leading to innovative, different and often surprising outcomes.  See some of our work in the case studies below.
