Urbanitarium is an international urban design consultancy practice operating at the forefront of today’s planetary-scale challenges. We are an urban vanguard designing the cities of the future, today.

The practice fills the gap between urban planning and architecture, through pioneering value-led urban design strategies crossed with state-of-the-art technologies.

Urbanitarium navigates the complexity of the multilayered urban context through urban innovation and forward thinking across multiple design systems.

Urbanitarium is backed-up by its inhouse think-tank, Urbanitarian, building on precedents through the world’s largest urban design project archive.

Position

1. On Ecology

Ecology is the backbone to how we operate. We practice ecological urbanism.

2. On Economy

We broaden up the concept of economy where ecology, health and wellbeing, and decision making are also part of the urban economy.

3. On Life

Cities should be a natural extension to life itself, we conceive living cities, vibrant and biologically inclusive to all forms of life.

4. On Diversity

Diversity is key to richness in any context. From streetscapes to territories, diversity underlies our strategies.

5. On Form

Urban form might be the most figurative aspect of cities. A drawing is an idea, and that's why we think of urban form, or the formal aspect of the built environment as an evolution of a centuries-old craft of spatially laying out cities.

6. On Politics

The best urbanism is one that creates identity, consent and a sense of belonging. We are intentional and politically engaged with accomplishing the best top-down/bottom-up balanced solution integrations. From urban strategies to tactical urbanism.

7. On Social Fabric

Social fabrics are perhaps the most complex layer of an urban context. Urbanitarium is keen to engage communities locally using a mutual responsibility awareness-based model.

Tools

Urbanitarium acknowledges urbanism as a science, and therefore, is keen to deploy a workflow that merges physical models, prototyping, and computational tools for form finding, environmental simulations,citizen science, pedestrian flows, footprint assessment, and visualization. Urbanitarium is open for partnerships with leading urban-tech practices to complexify the workflow and thrive mutually with.

Operation Space

As a design consultancy, Urbanitarium operates across scales, from urban furniture to territorial planning. We are an alloy of urbanists and technologists with extensive experience in the industry from research to international design consultations.

Urbanitarium and Urbanitarian secure a unique position, relevant at both ends of the discipline, the internal discourse and the industry. Hence, Urbanitarium caters for an array of partners and clients, from local communities, private investors to governments.
