Urban Land Institute (ULI) is the oldest and largest network of real estate and land use experts in the world. 

Each year they award the ULI Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development to an individual whose commitment to creating the highest quality built environment has led to the betterment of our society. The award includes a $100k cash prize and the recipient is honored at the ULI Fall Meeting.

For the past two years we’ve partnered with ULI to create a short film about the award winner.


2022 ULI Prize Winner

Jeanne Gang is an American architect and the founder and leader of Studio Gang, an architecture and urban design practice with offices in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. Gang was first widely recognized for the Aqua Tower, the tallest woman-designed building in the world at the time of its completion.

Aqua has since been surpassed by the nearby St. Regis Chicago, also of her design. Surface has called Gang one of Chicago’s most prominent architects of her generation, and her projects have been widely awarded.

Working with the Altamira team has been excellent. I’ve been working with them for about four years now. They consistently deliver beyond our expectations. The team is easy to work with and very adaptable. I appreciate their flexibility and attention to detail. I plan to continue working with them for years to come.

2021 ULI Prize Winner

Jonathan F. P. Rose is an American urban planner and real estate developer. Through his corporation Jonathan Rose Companies, he is known for developing communities that are considered affordable and environmentally-responsible. Apart from his involvement in various aspects of property, Rose has founded Gramavision Records, a jazz and New Music label. Rose has written several books including The Well Tempered City: What Modern Science, Ancient Civilizations and Human Behavior Teach Us About the Future of Urban Life.

We’ve worked with Altamira for more than three years to produce short films to celebrate the annual ULI Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development. They have done a beautiful job turning sets of interviews and imagery of the work of the winners into powerful yet compact narratives that clearly communicate the story of the prize, the laureate, and our organization. The team at Altamira is a pleasure to work with – they are responsive and able to adapt to our budget and the changing needs of our schedule.
