Foresight is Arup’s internal think-tank and consultancy which deals with the future of the built environment and society at large. We serve Arup’s global business as well as external clients from a broad range of regions and sectors. We help organizations understand trends, explore new ideas, and radically rethink the future of their business. We developed the concept of ‘foresight by design’, which uses innovative design tools and techniques to bring new ideas to life and engage clients and stakeholders in meaningful conversations about change.
