Urbanixm aims at improving the access to information about urban interventions and their impact by collecting and structuring urbanism knowledge from around the globe and making it accessible through a special purpose search engine.

We simplify the search for information about the measured impact of urban interventions and reduce the cost and effort involved in urbanism desk research.

We aid an evidence based dialogue about urbanism, guiding cities, businesses and citizens toward reaching the desired outcomes on environmental and social sustainability.
