Planning by Design




The IHPP, founded by Richard "Dick" Muther, is a select group of professionals who are interested in planning as a necessary everyday activity, as a system, as a science, as an art form.

The institute is a small, informal group by design. Members include educators, consultants and managers from many industries and from around the world.

IHPP provides a community with networking and educational opportunities, and a yearly workshop, for planning professionals. Contact us for more information.
