Collaborations

Our work with trans-disciplinary teams and experts features the following people and companies (see also our Projects):

Academy of Urbanism

We have been collaborating with the Academy on a number of projects involving place mapping exercises (Chelmsford Festival of Ideas) and on supporting study visits for the graduates of the Barratt Graduate Development Programme. 

Adept

With Copenhagen-based architect practice Adept, which recently received a special mention in the Monocle Denmark Survey 2012 as ‘one of three young architects practices to watch’, we worked on a number of winning parallel competitions including Køge Kyst and Fredericia. 

AIM

Helsingborg-based architect practice AIM (Architecture Is Made) features urbanists, artists, creatives, dreamers and hard-core designers dedicated to challenging conventional approaches to place-making. With AIM we have recently worked on two highly prestigious competitions in Gothenburg.

Arup

With Arup London we worked on delivering cultural planning masterclasses and presentations to their teams.

British Council 

We have an establish collaboration with the Creative Economy unit at the British Council. Projects involve presentations, cultural mapping workshops and policy advice to countries outside Europe.

Fablevision

With Glasgow-based cultural planning social enterprise specialists Fablevision, we deliver neighbourhood interventions and artist-led community projects.

Flaneurs

We have recently formed a joint venture with with up-and-coming Czech communication company Little Greta. Flaneurs' mission is to work with cities on place branding and tourism campaigns. 

Gehl Architects

Over the past few years we have worked with the Danish team at Gehl on place mapping masterclasses delivered to members of cities networks affiliated to this high-profile, international urban design practice.

MCO

We have a work alliance with Dublin-based MCO; a multidisciplinary practice with diverse skills and qualifications including business, project management, environmental, architecture, engineering, communications, cultural and social development. Their work with high profile projects, such as The Digital Hub and Temple Bar in Dublin, have made them the first choice for civic leaders looking for integrated approaches to regeneration. MCO and Noema worked together with Sligo County on a Cultural Masterplan for Sligo town centre.

Schønherr

Together with a team led by Schønherr Landscape we qualified to take part in a five-day design brainstorm and rethink workshop for the Göteborg River City competition. The material produced during the workshops was showcased in a major international exhibition held in the city in November 2011. 

Testbed

In Malmö and Stockholm we have had for many years a creative collaboration with urban flaneurs, artists and architects Testbed. With them, we famously came up with the proposal for the Storm Centre in Södra Smaland (Sweden).

White Architects

With the Malmö-based White team we worked on the award-winning new design for Southend's Pier. We completed a cultural analysis of this historic part of the city.
