Doug Suisman, FAIA, founded Suisman Urban Design in 1990. An urban designer and licensed architect, Suisman has gained international recognition for his ideas and designs of urban public spaces. He was educated at Yale and Columbia, where he won the American Institute of Architects Medal. His clients range from planning ministries, public agencies and think tanks to developers and community groups in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, San Antonio, and San Francisco. His projects include master plans and detailed designs for sustainable urban growth, regional transit systems, downtowns, civic centers, plazas, parks, and streetscapes. Suisman has lectured and taught widely, including faculty appointments at Berkley, UCLA, and USC.

In partnership with the RAND Corporation, Suisman has developed an urban design plan for a new Palestinian state. The project has recently won three prestigious awards and was the subject of an extensive front page article in the arts section of the New York Times.
