The Jerde Partnership is an architecture and urban planning firm that focuses on creating complex and distinct places where individuals can gather and share a sense of community. Jerde strives for authenticity within the site and the design
and therefore creates a highly organized procession of entertainment, housing, nature, parks, public spaces, restaurants and shops that respond to the specific place. Through this holistic and place-based approach, Jerde strengthens neighborhoods both socially and economically.
The firm collaborates with clients to conceptualize an authentic urban experience where people can interact with their community. Jerde takes a “co-creativity” approach in which collaborators envision a highly experiential experience that effortlessly blends architecture, environments, interiors, landscape, lighting and water features. Jerde Partnership creates site-specific experiential places that increase the quality of the users’ lives.
