Arup’s ‘Cities Alive’ report has won the inaugural best use of thought leadership category in the 2015 Management Consultancies Association Awards
‘Cities Alive – rethinking green infrastructure’ envisages cities of the future as integrated networks of intelligent green spaces, designed to improve the health and wellbeing of citizens.
Supported by the Landscape Institute and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the report highlights how green infrastructure has to now take a more influential role in the planning and design of cities and urban environments.
This initiative, led by Tom Armour, leader of the Arup Landscape Architecture business, is the product of collaboration between the Landscape Architecture and Arup’s Foresight + Research + Innovation team.
In addition to achieving a radical shift in the perception of green infrastructure and landscape architecture internally, says Arup, the report highlights the firm’s growing reputation in cities research, one of its core global markets.
