Director of Urban Interface
A Director at KPF, Luc leads KPF Urban Interface, an internal think tank furthering urban planning and architectural design through computational research and a suite of proprietary analytical tools. With his interdisciplinary team, Luc has developed a unique data-driven design methodology and applied it to over 300 of KPF’s projects globally. Luc’s approach optimizes performance metrics within a human-centric framework of how cities, neighborhoods, and buildings are used from day to day by the people they serve. His expertise has attracted some of the most innovative and complex urban planning projects, including Sidewalk Labs in Toronto and the East Midtown Rezoning for the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP). Luc is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP, where he teaches courses focused on performance-based design and urban data analytics. He is a member of the Urban Design Forum and on the planning committee for the Municipal Arts Society.
