UR°BANA is about space and place – the four dimensional environment that encompasses us. Our work is diverse in locations and spheres, hoping to contribute to innovative design perspectives, contemporary solutions, and fresh attitudes. The field of action is within the realms of the “urban” in all its dimensions and scales, while the products and services delivered are hybrids between urban research and analysis (UR) on one side, and experimentation with and realization of physical spaces (BANA) on the other. UR°BANA understands itself as a ‘think-do’ tank where urban research feeds into designing and making – and vice versa. Through questioning, understanding, challenging, debating, negotiating, retrofitting, designing, prototyping, testing, doing… the creative process responds to challenges with ideas and scenarios, going through experimentation, curation, and re-imagination, towards action and co-creation of improved environments, spaces of opportunity, and places of joy.
