PUP is a do-tank. We're urban hackers. We rescue discarded materials, redesigning them so everyone can benefit. We use the money generated from our locally-designed and manufactured products to fund bigger projects and ideas that enhance Indianapolis' quality of life, connectedness, & design culture.

" WE HAVE A STRATEGIC PLAN. IT'S CALLED DOING THINGS "
Since 2008, we've salvaged 13 acres of RCA Dome roof fabric (former home of the Indianapolis Colts), 9000 Bush Stadium seats, nearly 5 miles of Super Bowl XLVI fabrics and vinyls, 640 Hinkle Fieldhouse seats, and 80 parking meters. Every day, we work with local designers, fabricators, doers, and makers to make sure that these resources find their way back into the public.

" MANY WELL-INTENTIONED PROJECTS, DESIGNED TO HELP THE WORLD, FAIL FOR A SINGLE REASON. THEY AREN'T BEAUTIFUL AND THEY AREN'T FUN. "
