What we do
Urban Cosmography is an office for urban research established in 2019 from architects Francesca Cocchiara and Sergios Strigklogiannis.
We work to realize community-oriented projects considering the urban space as the ground to root positive behaviors.
We promote engagement in talking about the challenges of contemporary cities by writing articles, building an Urban Vocabulary, and advertising calls for papers, conferences and educational programs.
