We work on the complexity of urban challenges with creativity, design and innovation. We go one step further with a team that is diverse and passionate for cities who implements sustainable urban solutions from the idea to their execution.
Natives of the public sector, we work on cities from urban planning, environment, technology and economy with a people-centered focus.
What do we do?
We capture urban reality by integrating urban, demographic, economic and environmental dimensions from a systemic and human perspective. We combine the study of spatial data and available statistics with more intuitive techniques based on citizen needs, allowing us to discover other perspectives on urban challenges and the unique potentialities of the city.
We rely on collective intelligence available, allowing us to be more agile than others. By incorporating novel techniques and disciplines into our analytics, we discover weak signals that hid the true nature of the problems and potentialities of the city or neighborhood.
Together with the city we co-design an aspirational vision of the future based on its unique DNA with a realistic roadmap and a coherent narrative. We build the way for radical and executable changes, therefore we do it looking at possible financing opportunities and searching for collaboration ecosystems between the city’s key stakeholders.
We have designed successfully urban sustainable development strategies, roadmaps to attract funding, unique digital transition strategies based on urban challenges, and sustainability and climate change plans to make cities more livable.
We apply our Creative Flow to complex urban challenges with solutions that are not direct and that require approaches based on design and innovation techniques. Starting from a challenge, we are able to come up with a tangible idea and collaboratively co-design an innovative project that fits the city’s needs with financing opportunities we know.
We have designed winning projects around challenges such as urban poverty, public spaces reactivation, local economy dynamization, social integration, re-naturalization of spaces, promotion of cultural heritage, sustainable urban mobility and housing with technology as a key ally of our ideas.
On many occasions ideas and projects are there, but the execution fails, which requires innovation, collective intelligence, creativity and generosity. We know the obstacles that arise in the execution of complex urban projects which are marked by uncertainty, the interdependence of events and the involvement of a many different agents.
We manage to improve collaboration between areas and apply a transversal approach in project execution. We are working on the implementation of urban innovative actions designed by Khora, sustainable urban development strategies with implementation difficulties and different plans (mobility, ecological transition, digitization).
How we work
Today’s urban challenges are characterized by their high complexity. Traditional linear methods have not been able to provide an effective response because they require more creative and systemic approaches. At Khora we love challenges and we apply on them our own method, based on collaboration, imagination, listening and creative exploration. This leads us to a different way of designing urban projects, more agile and innovative.
We have applied our creative flow to urban challenges of different nature, arriving in an agile way to transformational, tangible and executable solutions.

¿Por qué design thinking? Los desafíos que hoy afronta la ciudad son tan complejos (multidimensionales, multiagente, inciertos) que los métodos tradicionales de resolución de problemas ya no funcionan. Por eso, desde el comienzo del diseño del proyecto
