Geeti Silwal is the Urban Design Principal at Perkins&Will. As the Head of the West Coast Urban Design practice, Geeti brings vision and design leadership that establishes the foundation of transformative changes for livable and sustainable environments in cities. She strongly believes that urban designers hold the responsibility to inspire integrated, multi-purpose design solutions of innovation and beauty that create healthy and inclusive cities. Designing cities around the fundamental organizing principle of ‘people first’ delivers a more humane, inclusive, socially connected and a healthy city. Everyday city spaces that have the power to instill dignity and build memorable experiences for the common man are of primary interest to Geeti.
Building and revitalizing communities, she lays deep emphasis on placemaking, connectivity, accessibility, and social justice. Her experience covers a vast breadth of scales, including regional transit-focused planning, downtown revitalization, waterfront redevelopments, urban mixed-use infill projects, research/innovation district planning, and public realm enhancement along heavily challenged infrastructure corridors.
Geeti is currently leading multiple projects that leverage transportation investment to deliver high-density, mixed-use, vibrant communities around transit stations. Prioritizing low-carbon modes of travel in these transportation projects, to connect people and communities seamlessly is important to deliver on the aspiration of an equitable city.
Geeti is also deliberate in her design approach to reveal the unrealized potential of Nature and natural processes. This lies at the core of her push to deliver regenerative solutions that address climate change issues of water scarcity, food security and social equity. Her research on the Resource Infinity Loop discusses a solution for a closed-loop water and nutrient infrastructure within our cities. She believes that the pursuit of carbon neutrality is, at its heart, a clarion call for a culture change—one that heeds our delicate relationship with nature and gives back to the environment more than it takes.

She is currently leading urban design and mixed-use efforts at HGOR, an Atlanta-based planning and landscape architecture collaborative focused on the re-imagination of the physical environment to support the sustainability of people and place.
In 2017, Lauren became a Principal and has since accepted the role as Vice President of the firm (2020). Her design philosophy celebrates urban form – optimizing a balance between the built and natural environment. Lauren’s approach to complex, multi-layered developments is founded on an assimilation of components – art, technology, culture, programming capacity, living infrastructure – to leverage adaptability as a function for creating destinations of underutilized places and the spaces in between. From campuses and civic spaces to city parks and urban master plans, Lauren has crafted an exceptional body of work that reflects a deep commitment to memorable placemaking, including Atlantic Station Central Park (a Hines Development), Georgia World Congress Center’s Pedestrian Mall, and The Battery Atlanta at Truist Park.

Lauren’s understanding of the capabilities of transparency within the natural landscape strengthens form with function – resulting in impactful places that speak to a site’s history, context and aspirations. She has utilized her expertise in performance-based landscapes as a mentor for neighborhood legacy residents and non-profit organizations to layout frameworks that support the public agenda from an individual and organizational standpoint. Recently Lauren worked with Park Pride to develop trail connectivity and space activation and create conceptual park designs for a historic neighborhood in Atlanta.
Lauren is known for culturally significant design that serve as a powerful tool to showcase community character and improve quality of life. Connecting the individual experience with urban systems requires a high touch and loose fit design programming. Lauren has served on the ULI Atlanta’s Technical Assistance Programs (TAPs) Committee as a project manager for the Atlanta Community Schoolyards pilot program since its inception. She is also assisting in reimagining the Atlanta City Detention Center in Downtown Atlanta. She has been a member of ASLA and the Society for College and University Planning for over a decade.
