At its core, Urban Fabric is an ongoing conversation with the people who fund, design, build, and contribute to the physical spaces and communities we live in.
We discuss what are the drivers, influences, and constraints in their work, what they’re focused on today, and ideas to better shape communities in the future.
Our goal is to bring together contributors from across the building and urban development industries to examine why our communities are physically developed the way they are, and what trends and forces will shape their development in the future.

A note from Teague Nelson, the owner of White Fern, and host of Urban Fabric:
“I see Urban Fabric as a way to connect and discuss with interesting people in the building and urban industries.
It’s a natural extension and enhancement to what we do everyday at White Fern, where we specialize in web design and support for investment groups, architects, developers, property management, and others in the building and urban industries.
I’ve always been interested in how urban development and the built environment is shaped. My father is an architect, and as a History major in university, my main focus was on the development of towns and cities through a historical lens.
I ultimately see Urban Fabric as a way to make more connections in the community, learn about ways to better support those with a hand in shaping our communities, shine a spotlight on interesting people doing interesting work, and hopefully have some interesting conversations along the way!”
