City Fabrick is a nonprofit multi-disciplinary design studio reshaping communities in need through collaborative public-interest design, planning, policy development, and advocacy.

Based in Long Beach, City Fabrick engages with existing communities willing to explore change as ideal laboratories for creating innovative examples of how to repurpose, retrofit and develop sustainable cities. By leveraging the prototyping, piloting and experimentation, City Fabrick collaborates with other purpose-driven  organizations to fast-track these communities for invention and best practices.

City Fabrick adapts to working in a diversity of environments, filling a variety of roles and providing a broad spectrum of expertise – based on what best serves those partnerships, programs and projects. As a consultant, the organization provides professional services to other nonprofit organizations, government agencies and private entities dedicated to projects that serve the public good. 

City Fabrick plans, designs and implements projects types including open space, mobility, land-use, housing and cultural development with concepts that are both site-specific and globally relevant. City Fabrick prepares research studies, formulates policies, develops communication resources and implements designs that proactively engage and empower professionals, officials, community leaders and the public on a broad range of topics related to urban planning, policy and design.

THE CITY FABRICK TEAM

As a design studio City Fabrick approaches each opportunity and challenge with an open-mind: sometimes the solution requires a can of paint; or a flier; rehabilitating or building a structure; even removing a major piece of infrastructure. Architects typically provide building solutions, landscape architects have landscape solutions and so on. As such, we employ a diverse array of designers who have expertise and interests in all forms of design, be it graphic, landscape, urban or building design. This varied approach to design enriches each project and even allows City Fabrick to provide comprehensive and multifaceted design strategies when called upon.


 

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

City Fabrick has a volunteer Board of Directors that consistently provides strategic guidance, fiscal oversight and expert insight. City Fabrick’s Board of Directors consists of dynamic emerging voices as well as veteran civic leaders which provides historic context in the communities we serve as well an eye towards the future. These Directors include among others, health providers, planners and real estate professionals from Southern California and the Bay Area, providing a diverse array of perspective and capacity that augments those staff within the regular operations.
