Chief Urban Designer and Director of
Urban Design, New York City

Jeffrey Shumaker

Jeffrey has worked on a number of city-wide initiatives and neighbourhood projects across New York. He believes in the transformative role of urban design in making cities both more liveable and sustainable. Jeffrey is interested in whether a radical approach to living can provide us with a sustainable approach to densification and whether high density development can ensure equitable access to public and shared space – as well as good quality housing.
