Urban Design Collective (UDC) is a collaborative platform for architects, urban designers and planners to create livable & sustainable cities through participatory planning and community engagement.
Within the agenda of creating livable & sustainable cities, specific issues that we focus on include-
Improving the quality of the public realm & built environment
Improving livability of neighbourhoods and precincts
Improving awareness on sustainable development
Innovating participatory approaches to improve community engagement towards the city building process
UDC was founded in 2011 as a platform to mobilize those who want to change the way our cities are built. By providing an open platform for young design professionals, who otherwise as individuals are excluded in the city building process, to create and disseminate content, we give them a chance to voice themselves as change-makers for better cities. As a result, UDC has come to be a global community of architects, designers, engineers, artists, writers, photographers and many others who are passionate about cities.
