Hi! I’m Lou.

I am an urban designer and front-end web developer based in Washington, D.C. by way of San Francisco. I use technology to improve cities and build better communities.

Recovering architect, 2013 fellow at Code for America, and LEED-ND accredited. I design for exceptional user experience, work with maps and open data, write about iterative placemaking, and speak about civic engagement in a digital world.

Here are some of my recent projects.

These are some other things I've made.

Here is a presentation I did recently.

I was a speaker at these places too.

I've been busy!

... and do many other things.

I’d love to work with you on your next project.

Please get in touch if you’d like to connect with me on interesting projects that meet at the intersection of urban planning and technology. Bonus points for ideas that emphasize real placemaking and data-driven decision making, and cross-disciplinary teams with amazing people. You can reach me at lou@louhuang.com.
