Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 emerging design studio of the year, The Urban Conga is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary design studio.

Comprised of a diverse group of creatives focused on sparking community interaction and social activity through open-ended play, The Urban Conga utilise play methodologies as a critical tool implemented not just in the work itself but in the participatory design process in which the work is created.

Their work explores the idea of working with communities to create more playable cities as an ecosystem of inclusive multiscale playable opportunities intertwined with our existing urban fabric.


This project has been longlisted in the emerging design studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
