More about Urbanspace GalleryLess about Urbanspace Gallery

With a focus on “bottom-up”, grass roots approaches, a wide range of local and global issues are examined including community, public space, housing, transportation, planning, governance, diversity, sustainability, and citizenship.  In partnership with many individuals and organizations, Urbanspace Gallery contributes to an ongoing discussion about cities, and offers visitors a space to learn and reflect on their place within them.
