....We are an engine for accelerating urban innovation powered by a group of urbanists, futurists and designers.

Tekuma Frenchman is an international urban design and innovation office based in Boston, USA with branches in Shanghai and Dubai opening soon. Building on Professor Dennis Frenchman’s research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his past work, the office is currently involved in many projects across the globe, embracing every scale of intervention – from planning cities for millions in China to art and cultural installations in America. Our expertise lies in the application of digital technology to city design through cutting-edge research that emerges from MIT. Thus, creating a 21st century city where innovation and the digital economy thrives. 

Some of the firm's notable achievements towards smart cities, innovation districts and media-scale oriented projects include Seoul Digital Media City in Korea, the Digital Mile in Zaragoza, Spain, Media City: UK in England, Twofour54 in Abu Dhabi, Medellin Innovation District in Colombia, Jinan New District in China and Ciudad Creativa Digital, Guadalajara, Mexico.

....VISION

We envision a new city shaped for today and the future. A model that is backed by technology, research, and culture. 


Layers of information networks and digital connections blanket our cities. With the advancement of technology and the increasing rate of digital natives, our urban areas are out-of-sync and dated. They have been conceived on a model before the internet existed. The way we re-imagine our built environment is critical: it will impact the lifestyles of millions. With the unprecedented number of people living in cities, the opportunity is greater than ever to challenge and rethink the spaces that will house future generations. Most firms operate at a corporate level creating a one-size fits all model which worked in the last century. In the meantime, there is ground-breaking research and innovation being conducted across labs but remain trapped within the realm of academia. We operate as a design platform, an urban laboratory that connects cities with world-class research labs out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop ideas, concepts and tools to make cities perform better and accelerate towards a city for the future. ..

愿景 
 

我们设想一个塑造今天和未来的新城市。 一个由技术,研究和文化支持的模型。 
 

信息网络和数字连接层覆盖了我们的城市。随着科技的进步和数字本地人的增长,我们的城市地区是不同步和过时的。在互联网出现之前,他们已经在模型上构思出来了。我们重新想象我们的建筑环境的方式是至关重要的:它将影响数百万人的生活方式。随着人口数量空前的城市人口,机会比以往任何时候挑战和重新考虑将容纳子孙后代的空间。大多数公司在企业层面运作,创造出上个世纪工作的“一刀切”模式。与此同时,在实验室之间进行了开创性的研究和创新,但仍被困在学术领域。我们作为一个设计平台运行,这是一个城市实验室,将城市与麻省理工学院世界级的研究实验室连接起来,开发思想,理念和工具,使城市更好地发展,并加速迈向未来的城市。....
