Who is The Flaneurbanite?
My name is Shilpa Bhatnagar and I am an Urbanist, Writer and Photographer based in London, UK. I own and run Ideado Consulting – a niche practice that conducts research and consults on Place making projects around the world.
I also write on urbanism and design for various publications and websites, and very occasionally exhibit, publish or sell my photography. If you would like me to write for your publication, please contact me using this form and I will respond promptly.
I have a deep interest in Cities, Architecture, Design, Art, Placemaking, Photography, Writing, Books, History and Travel, and this website is my attempt at bringing them all together in one place.
All the views and opinions on this site were mine at the time of writing. They probably still are.
On This Website…
… you will find my thoughts – mostly written, sometimes visual – on:
- Urbanism: A curation of interesting developments and news, and the occasional opinion about the world of Urbanism that I inhabit professionally – urban planning, architecture, place-making, development, cities, and sustainability.
- PhotoStories: This is the same old flaneurbanite, which was the germ of this much larger blog. If you followed it in its earlier avatar, you know what I’m talking about; if not – this is my photoblog on cities and places that I love – showcasing my love of flanerie and exploration, expressed through my camera.
- Design: A scrapbook of everything that I think is functional eye-candy – handsome interiors, decor, products, shops etc.
- Everything Else: Home to, quite literally, everything else that I have an opinion or an idea about (and I tend to have many). This could involve anecdotes, humour, a bit of fiction, and the occasional rant.
