Nicholas Taylor, Founder and Director
Nicholas holds a Dual Masters in Urban Policy and Planning (LSE and Sciences Po) and a BA from University College London. He has worked on urban development in the private and non-profit sectors from London, Paris, Bangkok, Hong Kong and New York.
His clients have included the Asian Development Bank, the Rockefeller Foundation, Oxfam, UNDP, UNESCO, UN-ESCAP and UN-Habitat as well as various architecture and urban design firms.
Observing the ways in which urban planning is often surpassed in developing world cities, and sector-specific practices sometimes jeopardize the integrity of urban systems, he founded Working for Cities in order to help organisations and businesses drive projects that make sense for cities and localities.
