A center for the study and practice of urban design

The Urban Design Project is a university center devoted to service, teaching and research in the pursuit of a critical practice of urban design. It was founded in 1990 by Professor Robert G. Shibley, and is located in the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Buffalo, State University of New York.

The Urban Design Project seeks to serve the communities of the Niagara-Buffalo city-region by bringing faculty and urban design students together with local governments, community based organizations and citizens in general, to engage the work of making better places and stronger communities.

The work of the Urban Design Project has encompassed faculty consultations, student studio projects, and supervised thesis investigations dealing with sites from Niagara Falls to Buffalo to Jamestown and engaging institutional partners including Buffalo Place Inc., The City of Buffalo, the Waterfront Regeneration Trust, The City of Niagara Falls, and Chautauqua County government.
