What we do

Amidst the never-ending sea of condo developments, on the fringe of mainstream urban planning, beneath the cover of darkness, Urban Design Guerillaz (UDG) are coming together to transform the neglected into the unexpected.

Overgrown gardens. Abandoned parks. Underused community spaces. If something's broke, then fix it. tag it.

Engage the community. Come together. Share ideas through creative workshops and design jams. Inspire action. pop it

Grab your tools. Bring your friends. Witness the power of the collective in action. Change can happen overnight. hack it.
