About us

PUPA is an inter­na­tional team of urban planners who have been profes­sionally and strategically shaping urban spaces in Lithuania and abroad for more than 10 years. While urban planning is still often perceived in a very narrow way (i.e. as simply planning footpaths or green spaces), we take on projects that listen to communities, respond to the needs of different people, and, most import­antly, have a real and lasting impact. There are many who can shape a beautiful urban space, but getting people to spend time there every day requires a demanding vision, analytical thinking and consistent work. This is the PUPA advantage.

The PUPA team has gained exper­ience in the Netherlands, UK, Spain and other countries, and has won many Lithuanian and inter­na­tional awards.


We use innov­ative and creative approaches to solve urban problems. These approaches often challenge estab­lished norms and working practices, but that is what inspires us and drives us forward.
