Simon Glynn is the Assistant Director (City Public Realm) for the City of London, where the emphasis is creating the highest possible quality of environment for people in the limited and complex space between buildings.
Simon manages a team of professional Project Managers, who deliver projects in partnership with City businesses, usually with complex funding arrangements. Many of these projects are delivering on the security needs of the City, whilst creating additional environmental quality and places for city communities to engage with culture and the arts. Current work is focusing on integrating tall buildings (including the tallest in Europe) in to the already densely developed districts of the City. Although an Urban Designer by background, his personal interest is in making projects happen within a complex funding/urban/stakeholder context.
