Founded in 2006, the Studio for Urban Projects is an interdisciplinary design collaborative that works at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, art and social activism. Our research-based projects aim to provoke change by re-framing perceptions of the city and physically transforming elements of the built environment. Engaging with the broad themes of ecology and urbanism, our projects have taken the form of digital media, exhibitions, publications, audio tours, architectural installations and urban interventions. Through these projects we reflect upon the cultural dynamics that shape our urban landscapes. We convert our studio space in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood to a public venue for the staging of workshops, talks, film screenings and meals that advance civic engagement and further public dialogue.
