Momentum Transport, the London-based, integrated transport consultancy will be supporting this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week as a Fringe Partner.
Based in Clerkenwell, the company will be showcasing its expertise in urban design by hosting two ‘re-imagining streets and spaces’ walking tours of the local area which will focus on examples of good urban and transport planning.
Will Durden, director at Momentum said: “Many people will be surprised to hear a group of engineers and transport planners talk about the work they do as ‘design’. But design, and specifically urban design, is an integral and essential part of everything we do at Momentum. Urban design focuses on the physical features of the places where people live and work. Where architects focus on individual buildings, urban designers plan for the municipal services, streets and public spaces in between them. Put simply it is about connecting people and spaces.
“We’re proud to be Fringe Partners of Clerkenwell Design Week this year. Clerkenwell is home to our London office, and to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else in the world, making it truly one of the most important design hubs.”
Clerkenwell Design Week takes place from 21-23 May 2019.
