Up-Lab is a collaborative design platform geared on sharing knowledge and producing concrete outcomes for individuals and communities in need. Our practice asks: Why is Miami the way it is? How can we make it better? And how can such actions lead to concrete contributions beyond Miami?
Miami’s claim to global city status requires social responsibility based on the city’s particular characteristics, opportunities and challenges. Our goal is to act as a leader and partner in pro-bono projects locally and beyond by exercising the supervision of volunteers, partnering with urban development actors and engaging design philanthropy.
