Given our multidisciplinary approach to improving our communities, City Fabrick offers a unique variety of design, planning and advocacy services that can be categorized into community engagement, urban planning, tactical urbanism, programs, and design.


 
 


ENGAGEMENT

Acknowledging that those who live, work, and play in their neighborhood on a daily basis are the true experts in the needs of a community, City Fabrick uses a bottom-up approach to planning by integrating robust public participation in all phases of the design process. When it comes to outreach, the studio goes above and beyond in its attempt to facilitate critical thinking and discussion by producing engagement material that is interactive, visually stimulating, and customized for each community without compromising its comprehensiveness.


 
 


DESIGN

 As a multi-disciplinary design studio, our work spans from communications and graphic design to architecture and environmental design that can develop site-specific as well as globally relevant solutions.  Project typologies are determined by site conditions and potential strategies, allowing City Fabrick to work beyond artificial boundaries of physical and ethereal, public and private, space and structure, relying instead on the commonality of creativity & inclusivity to make change.


 
 


PLANNING

We understand that each community has a unique cultural and built environment that requires creativity and collaboration between stakeholders to produce plans, projects and policies that consider the existing and future context. City Fabrick approaches urban issues using a combination of advocacy and participatory planning paradigms, aiming to incorporate and harmonize the viewpoints of all community members in a manner that responds with best practices taken and adapted both locally and internationally.


 
 


TACTICAL URBANISM

Without the support from community members, large-scale capital improvement projects can be met with hostility and disapproval. As a response, City Fabrick embraces the use of tactical urbanism, or the prototyping of urban design interventions using a collection of low-cost, temporary materials and programming. City Fabrick has been involved in the design, development and implementation of such projects, identifying it as an opportunity for substantive community feedback and the strengthening of community member relationships.


 
 


PROGRAMMING

City Fabrick is committed to creating a culture of sharing knowledge and civic engagement, particularly in the context of Long Beach. As a result, City Fabrick has participated in hosting several programs that encourage thought-provoking discussions of current urban issues and innovations.
