An urban designer, landscape architect and landscape archaeologist, Scott Hawken focuses his expertise in three thematic areas: Smart Cities (Planning and Design), Asian Urbanism, and Ecological Networks and Biophilic Cities.
His work uses a synergistic approach using advanced geospatial technologies and innovative fieldwork approaches within the Asia-Pacific region.
