New London Architecture



Futurecity is a leading cultural placemaking consultancy based in London with an international portfolio.
Futurecity has produced over 250 cultural strategies for private-sector and public-sector
real estate clients across the world. Futurecity creates culture-led placemaking and destination strategies, broker cultural partnerships, deliver major cultural projects and devises innovative strategies, which have been sensitively constructed and developed into unique destinations across the UK, Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Australia.
Futurecity considers placemaking as the key to unlocking the power and potential of our urban spaces. At the beginning of any project, Futurecity encourages property developers, master planners, architects, engineers, landscape designers and city planners to use culture-led placemaking to provide a narrative and vision for a multitude of projects from brownfield sites to new city quarters where the studio-tested and honed their placemaking methodology. 
Fifteen years of unparalleled access to the global real estate sector has enabled the studio to achieve its reputation as the world’s leading placemaking agency. Futurecity’s strategic efforts have facilitated distinct identities and destinations for prestigious commercial, mixed-use, retail, and residential developments. 
The studio persistently pushes boundaries of art practice, by exploring bold new ideas and challenging the status quo. Mark Davy – Founder of Futurecity describes their portfolio as a ‘gallery without walls’. 


For 15 years Futurecity has promoted the importance of culture as a driving narrative across the real estate sector, from Build to Rent and Business Investment Districts to Residential, Retail, and Creative Districts. We joined the NLA with a Culture led Placemaking event in 2014. In 2018 we published a manifesto as part of our NLA exhibition promoting the digital and immersive arts in architecture, landscape, and infrastructure. In 2023 we have re-joined the NLA at a time of upheaval and societal change, where more than ever culture provides ‘software not hardware’ and acts as a catalyst, lens and narrator.
