MKSK, Inc.

About MKSK, Inc.

MKSK is a collective of Planners, Urban Designers, and Landscape Architects, founded in 1990, who are passionate about the interaction between people and place. We are an employee-owned practice with a network of twelve metropolitan studios in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and the District of Columbia.

MKSK works to solve the pressing issues in our cities and communities, and build places where people want to live. We work with communities and clients to reimagine, plan, and design dynamic environments for the betterment of all.

MKSK approaches planning and design with a clear understanding that each place is unique and has economic, social, environmental, historical, and cultural influences which should be explored through thoughtful, context sensitive design. We help communities and our clients meet the challenges of changing global conditions through the MKSK LAB for Climate and Biodiversity Resilience.

We shape place to improve lives, and we share our transformational stories and the power of strong planning and design to inspire ourselves, our peers, and the world to work together for the common good.

Together we plan and design a world in which we all want to live.
