URBAN DESIGN EDUCATION
See new potential, listen to each other, and discover better places.
URBAN DESIGN ADVOCACY
Good design needs to be nurtured at every step
We are urban designers, architects, and educators. Our mission is to create better places for people through urban design.
We love to guide productive discussions, create and illustrate ideas, and use visual tools to help understand what is possible.
Urban Field was founded in order to explore new ways to practice sustainable architecture and experiment with the way we engage with the public.
Urban Field is not Jane’s first business, she started a specialty soup business in downtown Oakland as a design project. Jane also teaches school aged kids architecture, exercising her ability to speak directly about the world around us.
Having grown up in Germany, Heidi often challenges our team by introducing precedents and designs for urban places that are outside the American vernacular. When she is not advocating for public spaces and connectivity, she is riding her bike or motorcycle.
Frank Fuller is our urban design yoda even though he looks like David Letterman. Frank joined Heidi and Jane at Urban Field Studio in 2015 after failing to retire. The three have been a team since 2006.
