We are UBLA
We design liveable spaces and better communication for cities
We do 2 things
We help enhance the quality of life in a city through architectural and spatial design
We help engage people in their city through producing inviting urban communications
A happier, more productive and more competitive city
A two-sided task
Cities frame our lives and determine what we see, what we can do and how we move around. In order for a city to thrive, its citizens need to both truly appreciate, and take pride in, their frame.
The task is two-sided: The city must supply quality urban spaces that are both functional and liveable — and at the same time communicate the city and its ongoing transformation in a manner that involves the citizens.
UBLA “thinks the city” from a user perspective, helps shift cityscapes from blocks of bricks to outdoor homes — and creates a city narrative, resulting in what we call The Engaged City.
When we help design urban spaces, we work from a set of premises
When we help communicate, we work from four basic ideas
