Populous (Activate Studio)

Firm Details

We’re a global design firm with colleagues spanning four continents. Working with communities of all sizes and using a range of disciplines, we create experiences that amplify the joy felt in shared human moments. Our approach starts with you at the table. We ask questions, observe people and apply experience honed over four decades and thousands of projects. It’s led us to design a variety of spaces — from stadiums and arenas to airports — all with one question in common: How do you keep people coming back again and again?
