Urban Research Unit (URU) is founded by Grimshaw and FutureCity in collaboration with the Fellows of the RSA.  URU is a one-year research project focused on urban design, masterplanning and placemaking. It will include a series of eight panel discussions, four in London and four in New York, that will use various urban factors to compare and contrast New York and London.
