Urbis announces award-winning landscape architecture practice, Form, will be joining the Urbis Design team in Queensland.

Together, this talented team will become the single largest urban design and landscape architectural studio in Queensland, and one of the largest in Australia.

Form joining our cohort of Brightest Minds is a decision consistent with Urbis’ focus on continually enhancing client value and delivering unrivalled, integrated services.  


We are very proud and excited to bring this talented bunch into the Urbis fold.

The union of these two design teams will be transformational – all backed by Urbis’ wider integrated service offering of strategic advisory, urban planning, economics, policy, heritage and archaeology.

Form, a boutique practice with an astounding track-record and significant design success, bring a skillset that is complimentary to ours, diversifying our offer, as well as bolstering our presence in different markets.

Effective 16 May 2022, Form’s 21-strong expert team will join Urbis’s national line-up of 91 landscape architects and urban design experts, significantly boosting Urbis’ national design capability.

The combination of these two teams is set to unleash one of the most formidable design studios in the country.
