Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat

About HASSELL

HASSELL is a leading international design practice with studios in Australia, China, South East Asia and the United Kingdom.

They judge the success of the buildings and places we design by the way people use and enjoy them - the clients who commission them, the people who inhabit them. Good design is about helping clients meet their needs and objectives. It is also about the way people feel when they experience it, a sense of meaning, connection and belonging.
