Anna Rose is an architect and urban planner with a specialism in mixed-use masterplanning and public space design. Trained in Germany and the UK, she joined Space Syntax in 2002, becoming a Director in 2007.
Anna leads Space Syntax’s consulting activities in the UK, USA and continental Europe. She has extensive experience in advising both private and public sector clients on spatially complex masterplanning projects, with a particular focus on the design of effective human behaviour patterns.
Her expertise is in the optimisation of spatial layout designs for the benefit of pedestrians and cyclists (walkability, safety and conviviality) as well as the sustainability of local neighbourhoods (retail performance, proximity to footfall, density of amenity, transaction potential).
