We are a nonprofit urban design studio dedicated to improving the physical environment of Long Beach through design, planning, policy and engagement. 

The size, location, diversity & framework of Long Beach make it an ideal laboratory for creating innovative examples of how to re-purpose, retrofit and develop a sustainable city. By leveraging the case study model, we seek to fast-track Long Beach for invention and best practices.

We plan, develop and implement projects spanning open space, mobility, land-use and building design with concepts that are both site-specific and globally relevant. We prepare research studies, formulate policies and develop communication resources 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.
