Read the profile of Jeremy Burke, Aretian Urban Analytics Co-founder!

In our newly published videos, Jeremy Burke describes how the Aretian method, to design new innovation districts, benefits not only the economic performance, but also the broader liveability and social benefits for residents. Aretian’s methods are compiled in the new book: “City Science: Performance Follows Form” published by Actar Publishers. This book prefaced by Harvard University Former Executive Dean Fawwaz Habbal presents an extended study of 100 urban environments and metropolitan areas throughout the World, across the 5 different continents.

This research empowers planners and decision makers to compare and contrast - in terms of urban performance - not only the quality of the architectural and urban design characteristics and civil engineering infrastructures, but also the impact that those systems have on the quality of life of citizens. This book answers some of the most crucial questions in modern urbanism such as: to what extent are cities able to provide 15-minute city standards? How are cities able to provide and shape a prosperous knowledge economy? As well as a good and efficient intermodal mobility and transportation system? Among other important urban topics. Jeremy is a Co-founder and Managing Partner of Aretian Urban Analytics and Design. He graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2011 and from Harvard University with a Master of Design Engineering in 2018.

Jeremy recently contributed a few insights on Aretian’s short videos that you can find on our Youtube channel:

In this video, Jeremy Burke describes how Innovation Districts can help spur other types of supporting development projects, and boost innovation within a city’s business ecosystem. The new projects grow the community of innovators across different industries and provide opportunities for new support services. Many innovation district projects also help to develop new parks and public transportation.

By combining key datasets, Aretian is able to create new insights and answer many questions that are critical to the design of innovation districts and new urban development. The new methods that we created, using geospatial data and computational design tools, allow us to understand, describe and benchmark urban environments against key performance metrics to improve urban development projects.

In this video, Jeremy explains how Aretian defines the term Smart Cities. We use data to help inform the design of new districts rather than a layer of digital operation tools that are now being built into the urban fabric. Our definition of the Smart City is to understand how to design the underlying structures of cities so that they will help to foster economic growth and improve the livelihood of citizens.
