URBA.TEAM is the Art & Build internal centre of expertise in town planning and land development. This expertise is distinguished by a rigorous approach and action that is future-looking, environmental and social in nature.
The first objective of the methodological action is to extract, display and use the advantages, the weaknesses and the potentialities of the site. Art & Build develops its projects with an eye to urbanistic integration, the environmental factor and to the foreseeable development of the context. It does this in terms of the existing de facto and legal situation, as well as the situation projected in the medium or long term.
As regards town planning, Art & Build is developing a prospective action that goes beyond just the objective data from analysising the territory. The social, cultural, economic and environmental aspects transcend strict considerations of urbanism and open a field of possibilities that only a forward looking approach covering the whole spectrum can permit.
The environmental action here takes on its sense to the extent that the development of "large territories" involves a broad consideration on the density of construction, the permeability of the ground, sunlight, use of local natural resources (production, recovery), economic and energy efficiency, mobility, safety and accessibility for all
social concerns are central in the sense that if the spacial organisation of the City displays a social organisation of its occupants, then it can also be the catalyst for a new Quality of Life.
Finally, Art & Build also is committed to never lose sight of the human scale. Our expertise extends to developing the surroundings and the public spaces in an effort to revitalise the entire urban fabric.
