Profile of Mr Nicholas Kasang Global Urban Studies Institute

Nicholas Kasang

As a designer, urbanist, researcher, and innovator I have diverse and comprehensive professional experience pertaining to integrated urban development. Throughout my work, I have concentrated on achieving livable and sustainable cities by encouraging an accessible, vibrant, and safe public realm. I have collaborated with a variety of initiatives at the nexus of open space planning, interim use, violence prevention, sustainable mobility, policy development, and community engagement.

General research interests

I am interested in the types of spatial interventions which promote liveable, inclusive, safe, productive, and ecologically-attentive urban spaces. My research focuses on the confluence of design, intervention, programming, governance, and infrastructure. Through such work I am looking for ways to make research tangible and accessible to policy makers as well as communities.
