To create socio-cultural understanding of the built environment and unearth diverse perspectives and insights that can influence policy level decisions to create spatial equality and equity.


At Community Design Agency, we research on various socio-cultural aspects of the urbanscape with the active participation of our community partners. Surveys and studies, whether specific to a project or a broader thematic area, are conducted using participatory tools, GIS mapping, qualitative interviews and quantitative metrics.

We aim to build on these practices to reveal more holistic insights and perspectives that could influence larger policies on urban design and spatial equality, which in turn impacts people across different demographic groups.
