Ecosistema Urbano is a design and consulting company operating within the fields of urbanism, architecture, and sociology, with offices in Madrid and Miami.
Ecosistema Urbano was co-founded in 2000 by architects Belinda Tato and Jose Luis Vallejo who have been the directors since then.
Since 2000, ecosistema has received more than 70 awards in national and international architecture design competitions. Their projects have been exhibited at multiple galleries, museums, and institutions, such as the Chicago Art Institute or the Venice Biennale.
We define our approach as urban social design, by which we understand the design of environments, spaces, and dynamics in order to improve selforganization of citizens, social interaction within communities and their relationship with the environment.
We have used this philosophy to design and implement projects in the US, Norway, Spain, Italy, Ecuador, Bahrain and China among others.
