We believe that a great city comes from a great relationship between the people and the place.

At Urban Impact Lab, we're a little obsessed with what we call the "space in between".  

Essentially, this space is where people interact with the buildings, streets, and activity around them as well as where the elements of the city touch and connect with a person.  The space in between reflects how well the city -- from its design to its policies -- and the people connect, communicate, and interact with each other.  The stronger the relationship, the better the city because ultimately, " the real city is made of flesh, not concrete*."
