Ultimately the built environment exists for its inhabitants, yet so many of the spaces and cities we find ourselves in seem ignorant of our needs and wishes. PLP Labs designs and strategises for a world that revolves around us. We want to build communities, foster culture and propose settings that react to the changing ways in which we interact with our surroundings and each other.
More than ever, cities have the power to influence everything from national cultures to individual’s habits. They are filled with more people and play an ever increasingly important parts in all of our lives, fulfilling more and more roles for us. Cities began as a convenience for employment. Now, the city is for living, for culture, for health, for holiday, for national pride and international connections. Our approach to the design and strategy behind our cities focuses on creating positive forces for community development, cultural engagement, improving quality of life and reducing their negative impacts on our health, wellbeing and our planet.
Technologies, especially digital ones, have driven unprecedented growth in every aspect of our world. Whether it’s unmistakable on our devices, or less obvious in our daily interactions. This progress offers a wealth of potential that hasn’t been adopted well enough in the design and construction of our cities. PLP Labs changes this, bringing the latest technology into every stage of our work, from exploration and visualisation, to design and implementation. By understanding and incorporating technology we can construct surroundings that respond to our actual needs and are relevant to our time.
