Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering

SpaceTimeLab is a multidisciplinary research centre in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, University College London. TheSpaceTimeLab promotes and enhances research on spatio-temporal complexity in society, economics and engineering.

SpaceTimeLab_logo

Key features of the of SpaceTimeLab are encapsulated in our logo, which integrates elements of the following five concepts:

Mutlidimensionality:

The logo can be perceived as a 2D hexagon, but on closer examination the 3D nature of the cubic structure is revealed. Our analysis integrates both 3D space and time.

Networks:
The logo strongly suggests interconnectivity, with the vertices of the cube creating a network. A network is one way of modelling complex spatio-temporal problems.  

People:

When perceived as a 2D hexagon, the outer vertices of the symbol bear reference to a circle of connected people. We deal with issues such as crime, transport and economics, that affect people's daily life. 

Maps:
Greens and blues have been chosen in reference to this core tool of the lab. Maps are essential for effectively visualising and communicating results 

Data:

The logo has been designed to have a geometric feel and convey the sense of digitalisation. We work with big data, which can be both geographically and temporally referenced.
