Julian Petrin

The Co​​creative City

The Future Belongs To The Cocreative City.

Cities are people. Designing the future city today means to involve the creativity and knowledge of all citizens. Since 1998 I am working on methods and projects that unlock people's expertise and ideas as main resources for our future cities.
I strongly believe that the cities that are built on these resources will be better cities – more sustainable and more successful as livable places.
Make your city a people's place.
