urb-in is a practice specializing in infrastructure and design. We seek to recast how infrastructure projects are planned, designed, and executed, with a focus on design excellence and community participation. Our past work has ranged from large-scale project design management and master planning for institutional clients, to design work on smaller scale projects


Led by Jonathan Manzo. urb-in has worked as a principal consultant to the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) since 2009. In addition to overseeing multiple design and planning initiatives at PG&E, the firm has crafted new processes and methods for implementing high-profile capital infrastructure projects. urb-in has consulted with several lines of business at PG&E, including Public Affairs, Remediation, Land Planning, and Electrical Operations.

Having led a wide range of collaborative design projects, urb-in has developed a strong network of local, national and international collaborators, including: Stanley Saitowitz, TEF Design, Tatiana Bilbao Estudio, Mia Lehrer, PAU, and RHAA.
