Founded in 2006 the Studio for Urban Projects is an art and design practice that seeks to advance civic engagement and further public dialogue. Our inter-disciplinary and research-based projects aim to provoke change by re-framing our perceptions of the city and physically transforming elements of the built environment. Engaging the broad themes of ecology and urbanism, our projects have taken the form of audio tours, interactive websites, exhibitions, and architectural environments. 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 foster civic dialog.
