Senior Urban Designer/ Landscape Architect: Ariel Utz Wirnsberger
What does Movement and Place mean to you? Any transport initiative or transport infrastructure form an integral part of our urban environment. Movement and Place is a new approach that acknowledges the complexity of our cities as being comprised of various social, infrastructure and natural layers, encouraging a more integral vision for transport initiatives for the future.
Why are you uniquely qualified to make Movement and Place assessments? As an urban designer and landscape architect, I possess the knowledge and tools to assess urban environments from multiple angles. This assessment, which forms part of the Movement and Place approach, sets the basis for subsequent discussions on transport alternatives.
How does Movement and Place primarily interest you? Urban challenges should be addressed with a multidisciplinary approach. Movement and Place is a tool that can bring different professions (and ‘languages’) together, allowing engineers, urban designers, planners and other professionals to tackle urban challenges in a more efficient way.
