our fetish: authenticity

Not everything is polished and perfect here and that’s not what urbanana attempts to achieve. Who wants perfection when you can have pure authenticity? Urbanana tries to be as authentic as it can be by bringing you in contact with people who love and co-design their urban space and who can tell you with conviction why you absolutely have to come back for another visit. The city is their sometimes ramshackle playground, their building site – and their pride and joy.

stay urbanana!
