Suzie Zuber

Senior Consultant - Place

Suzie is a welcome addition to the People and Place team. A creative urban strategist, Suzie brings over twenty years’ experience in the building design industry, from architectural practice in London and Hong Kong to design advocacy amongst communities and decision makers. Her career in sustainable architecture and urban design, and experience in delivering education programs, provides a new perspective for engagement and place strategy solutions.

She advocates for thorough and meaningful community engagement to support and build resilient local communities going through urban renewal. Her passionate and diplomatic approach has led communities to define visions for a better built environment and sustain a better quality of life.

Suzie has both sat on and trained design review panels across London, being appointed a Design Council CABE Building Design Expert based on her research into young people and the built environment.

She has a personal interest in town squares and ‘spaces in-between’ in cities like Barcelona, New York and London, that reflect their diverse local cultures and communities.
