maisam’s urban design approach is sensitive to the human condition and the experience of the natural environment. This approach allows a critical appraisal of the human scale and human needs, based on a collective concern for three-dimensional space as well as for public areas between buildings. maisam’s multi-disciplinary design team provides solutions for civic design, landscape design, and infrastructure engineering and architecture. The amenities in design are introduced in layers answering for function, microclimate, materials, services, maintenance and most importantly the users. Projects range in scale from urban nodes to university campuses and city centers.
