Research & Advisory
Since our inception, Urben has dedicated time and resource to research and advisory projects, both as a practice and as individual professionals. From working on design review panels to supporting a range of charitable organisations with Pro Bono services, we have helped to ensure that everybody has access to high quality design advice in order to make our towns and cities the best places they can be.
We have also worked with organisations such as the Royal College of Art and British Geological Survey on research projects which look at innovating new design approaches and solutions, with a particular focus on the subsurface of our towns and cities. We are also founder members of Think Deep UK (TDUK) a multi-disciplinary group of professionals with a particular interest in the design and development of the urban sub-surface.
