Cave Urban is a Sydney-based multidisciplinary studio formed by artists, architects and designers. Their practice explores the intersection of art and architecture by creating large-scale public installations, with an emphasis on community engagement, collaboration, and ecological design. They utilise the design and making process as a means of open-source research and development. For Cave Urban, community engagement is key in every project. The aim is to establish a public connection to the work through education and participation; empowering those who participate and sharing a sense of ownership of the project with all who are involved.
