Urban Studio has reached its goal!

February 21, 2017

Thank you for helping us GENERATE, INTEGRATE and INNOVATE A New Birmingham.

Any proceeds over goal will be used for studio equipment.

Here’s what our stakeholders are saying about us:

“Working the past few years to get the Birmingham Land Bank Authority established, I've turned to the Urban Studio to help articulate the impact that returning thousands of tax-delinquent properties to productive use could have on the built and natural environment.  Our work has just started, and I look forward to deeper engagements with Urban Studio in imagining the future of Birmingham's post-industrial revitalization.”

Phil Amthor, Birmingham Land Bank Authority

“Urban Studio has become and continues to be an integral part of the City of Birmingham; helping the City to understand, envision, discover and test new ways, ideas and physical designs of what today and tomorrow's Birmingham can be.”

Ben Wieseman ,REV Birmingham

Director of Catalytic Development
