UAP collaborates with artists, architects, designers, property developers and local authorities to deliver creative outcomes for the public realm.

Its groundbreaking approach to using materials, experimentation and research in innovative fabrication methods has been the key to its success. Its international team comprises craftsman, curators, designers, metal workers, project managers and artists, all dedicated to revolutionising the perception of public spaces around the world. Established by Daniel and Matthew Tobin in 1993 in Brisbane, Australia, UAP now spans three continents, with additional studios in New York and Shanghai and global satellite offices in Melbourne, Singapore, Shenzhen, Dubai and Detroit.

UAP’s portfolio includes prestigious projects such as the sculptural staircase developed with Frank Gehry for the UTS Business School in Sydney; the Jürgen Mayer’s installation in Times Square, the lobby at 10 Hudson Yards for KPF and Ai Weiwei’s Good Fences Make Good Neighbors in New York; Wahat Al Karama’s Memorial in Abu Dhabi designed by British artist Idris Khan; and Ring – Chain in Shanghai, French artist Arnaud Lapierre’s first permanent artwork in China.

UAP is currently working on several international projects, including the curatorial vision and public art program of Queen’s Wharf in Brisbane with kinetic artist Ned Khan and one of the last large scale public artwork of the late Lawrence Argent at Uniwalk, a mixed-use development in north Shenzhen, China.
