  • “Publica combines rigour, sensitivity and artistic flair in a manner that has transformed the quality of thinking about public space in London. They are a major force for good.”

    Fred Pilbrow

    Senior Partner, Pilbrow & Partners

    “Publica's approach to urbanism has been a significant help for the City of London in strategising and planning a new future for key districts of the City. Bank and Liverpool Street areas present London with particular challenges, that have been left untackled until now. Publica's methodology is based on a detailed understanding of the underlying processes at play, which make a place what it is, good or bad. This understanding leads to believable and achievable strategies for positive change that connect with the people who have invested socially and commercially in their City District.”

    Victor Callister

    Former Assistant Director of Environmental Enhancement, City of London

    “The Northbank is one of the most historic and busy parts of London with iconic places and buildings. Publica’s multidisciplinary expertise has developed a far-reaching public realm vision and strategy to ensure the district reaches its full potential as a world class destination. Lucy Musgrave and her team bring a thorough knowledge of London’s constantly evolving infrastructure, international exemplars and inspirations. Combining this with in-depth area analysis, Publica has developed long term projects such as the redesign of the Aldwych gyratory! Short to mid term enhancements will benefit pedestrians, business and freeholders with consideration of air quality, cycling, greening and place.”

    Ruth Duston

    CEO, Northbank BID

    “We’re great believers in the kind of work that Publica does – whether it is strategic mapping, movement patterns, simple observation or urban design proposals – as these provide substance to underpin or challenge what is sometimes no more than an architectural hunch.”

    Rab Bennetts

    Director, Bennetts Associates

    “Publica’s approach to specific proposals includes a thorough analysis of the place, not just the site. This is a helpful and effective way for all parties to understand existing environments, proposed developments and how good planning and design can produce and maintain sustainable places people want to use.”

    Graham King

    Head of Strategic Planning & Transportation, City of Westminster

    “Publica is able to articulate understanding of and then help create public realm brilliantly through very thorough and robust analysis and proactive support to the design team. Their work is highly regarded and on every occasion has helped secure planning permission. I find their input indispensable.”

    Barnaby Collins

    Partner, DP9

    “Publica has carved out a particular niche in the development world. Small and agile, they offer bespoke and creative design ideas to unlock difficult problems. They make the world interesting.”

    Peter Bishop

    Professor of Urban Design, The Bartlett, UCL

  • “Politically savvy, astute and intelligent would be how I'd describe Publica as they worked on what I consider to be one of the most complex pieces of place-making in 2014 –15: the Barbican Area Strategy and Cultural Hub. The thoughtfulness and creativity of their approach synthesised the views of multiple stakeholders and has resulted in a profoundly useful set of materials, which will no doubt be a reference for years to come. It's great to work as partners with people who are sensitive and practical and who strive for excellent outcomes. Quite simply, they delivered beyond my expectations.”

    Sharon Ament

    Director, Museum of London

    “Publica provides an especially high quality of service in the complex place-making sphere. I have witnessed at first hand how they approach both the analysis and policy recommendation elements of the task – for example their examination of the re-ordering of the Bank junction part of the City of London and the possibilities around the Barbican area, including a Cultural Hub concept. Their scope has also extended to some really detailed pieces of work relating to important parts of the West End. To me, they represent the very best level of delivery in an area that calls for imagination as well as technical expertise.”

    Michael Cassidy CBE

    Chairman, City of London Cultural Hub Advisory Group

    “Publica’s advice on place making is accurate, objective and well respected by those with key stakes in London’s urban realm and public spaces, this adds weight and independence to our project proposals, ultimately enhancing value.”

    Rob Samuel

    Head of Office Development, British Land

    “Tonic Housing is a new social enterprise looking to develop a fresh approach to LGBT older living. We  began to think about how communities engage with the spaces around them working quickly, with the brightest talent, knowledge and researchers of the Publica team. They have helped us develop our vision into something achievable, driven from the perspective of the people we seek to serve. Publica guided the Tonic Housing directors through an efficient process. We are left with clarity, focus and inspiring materials which will doubtless help others jump onboard.”

    Ali Wilson

    CEO School for Social Entrepreneurs and Co-Founder & Director of Tonic Housing CIC

    “We work with Publica because their unique research-based approach allows us to create a well-informed brief for our public space projects. At Hanover Square London, for example, their research, analysis and understanding of the urban environment was used to determine what this area needed to provide benefit to the public, allowing our design team to create a concept which won favour with the local planning authority and other stakeholders. Publica’s work was a key ingredient to the planning approval being obtained and the success of this scheme.”

    Neil Thompson

    Portfolio Director, Great Portland Estates
