Who we are

Urban Act is a multidisciplinary office that focuses on architecture and urban design, from large scale planning to public space projects. Our team is made of unique and talented designers, who work from early sketches and studies to on-site supervision. Urban Act constantly seeks innovative ways to better connect uses, social evolutions to spaces design to build robust and adaptable cities. The studio also adopts a transversal approach of urban ecology, to foster smart interactions between the living and the built worlds.

Alexandre Bouton, initially trained as a carpenter, then as an architect and urban designer, founded the studio in 2006. Urban Act currently employs 12 people. It is both based in Paris and Nantes and eager to develop abroad. We work with corporate, government and private clients to realize major civic, hotel, residential, office, commercial, and educational developments.
