Place Creation Design

Creating viable, long-term, spaces + places for community gathering + activation

Place creation, or placemaking, is critical when reimagining how a space can be transformed for a community, and a service that DRBTS enjoys being apart of the most - especially in communities of color. At DRBTS, we focus on creating pop up market installations, temporary to permanent space activation designing, and other design projects that ignite community gathering and access to resources.

What exactly is activation?

At DRBTS we define activation as the inclusive and collaborative creation of spaces + places that add to the vibrance of a community. Activation in our book is done beyond "special events" but those that can have long-term beneficial impacts for a community.


We also focus on intentional and functional design of spaces + places in communities of color that are beneficial to their existing character and culture. 


Our goal is to foster long-term community activation, small business development/hubs, safe public spaces + places, and to change the way places are designed for communities of color.

Placemaking + Urban Design + Installation Services - starting at $500/per project based on project scope. For activation space projects base fee is $2,000 - materials, programming, and more can be discussed within full scope of work quote.


Can also be contract work with a pre-determined contract price and/or can be negotiated based on scope of project.


Services can include:

● Design of space for pop up market and/or similar temp. to permanent installations

● Vendor management for markets

● Collaboration for entrepreneur-related pop ups and/or vendor coordination

● Urban design projects (small to medium scale)

Public Speaking + Appearances

Engaging the conversation around urban planning, urban design, and everything in between.

At DRBTS we navigate the public speaking arena a little differently when it comes to urban planning, urban design, and the impact on communities of color. We do certainly talk about those topics but we also engage the synergy between culture, character, and the like of communities of color that ties into urban planning on the back end. We keep it casual, interactive, transparent, and genuine as possible when it comes to these conversations.

Please be aware we're open to all discussions but we only take on invites that align with who we are, what we believe in, and who we do it for.
