Placemaking across Southeast Asia and beyond with JERDE

JERDE is a visionary urban design studio creating signature places that deliver memorable experiences and attract more than a billion people each year.  For 40 years, JERDE has pioneered the concept of “Placemaking” with more than 120 major projects on six continents. Headquartered in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, each JERDE client works closely with an equity partner to take a boutique, collaborative approach to the creative process of design and architecture. 

In 2019, the firm officially began operations in Southeast Asia to build new partnerships and developments in Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and other neighboring countries in the region. Today, JERDE introduces newly launched projects in Southeast Asia, Japan, and Turkey with a few more projects underway. Each masterplan attracts people providing lasting social, cultural and economic value, spurring further investment and revitalization. 

“It is exciting to see the physical growth of cities in Asia as rich culture and heritage are interwoven into the design of each project. My personal interest in the subject has brought me back to Singapore, making the rest of the region easily accessible. In each of these cities, it is evident that the placemaking concept is more important now than it ever has been before, as people are looking for more unique experiences in their day to day lives. What interests me are designs that are a reflection of the current socio-economic climate, and what we believe are the intrinsic needs of people,” said Ken Ho, Vice President and Design Principal.
