Presentation

300.000 Km/s is an urban planning agency founded in Barcelona aimed at making cities the most livable places on the planet. We are a team of architects, urban planners, data scientists and programmers who explore the potentials of big data and new computing paradigms to improve urban analysis, strategic planning and decision-making.

We work with a variety of urban agents, including public administrations, companies providing urban services, scientific institutions, universities, non-profit organizations and citizens’ groups to offer responses to today’s challenges that intertwine a range of different specialized fields of knowledge.

We apply our experience, derived from collaborating with leading public authorities and urban stakeholders across Europe, to evaluating and innovating in the diagnosis process and the development of data-informed policy. We offer strategic consulting services, analysis of geographic data for urban and territorial diagnosis, the development and management of planning processes, data visualization and interactive mapping, digital platforms and elements of digital narrative.

Our pioneering work in the field of urbanism has been recognized for its innovative quality and its impact on social transformation by the European Commission (S+T+ARTS Prize 2019), the Premio de Urbanismo Español 2019 and the Premi Catalunya d’Urbanisme 2020, among others. Over the past 10 years, we have maintained ongoing relationships with various Spanish Universities, including the Barcelona School of Architecture, the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and the UPC Foundation.

We have taught classes and given lectures at prestigious academic institutions across Europe (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, TU Braunschweig, Welsh School of Architecture, among others), as well as participating regularly in debates and conferences of significance in the sector. Our work has been exhibited at international cultural institutions, including BOZAR Bruxelles (2020), the Festival Ars Electronica (2019), the Chicago Arts Institute (2015) or the CCCB in Barcelona (2013). We have developed material for events such as the Venice Architecture Biennale (2021, 2016).

300.000 Km/s was co-founded in 2014 by Pablo Martínez and Mar Santamaria, co-directors. Andre Resende (chief data officer), Ana Badenas Izquierdo (project coordinator) and Sergio García Peréz (strategic projects) are core members of our team.
