Cities Methodologies

Cities Methodologies 2012

We currently have a Call for Proposals for Cities Methodologies 2014. Please click here to find out more and download the application form.

Cities Methodologies is an annual exhibition and programme of events showcasing innovative urban research methodologies.

Inaugurated in 2009, Cities Methodologies is an initiative to showcase innovative methods of urban research from across UCL and the wider urban research community. Through peer-reviewed exhibits and events, it draws together undergraduate, masters, and doctoral research, alongside work produced by academics and other researchers and practitioners. Cities Methodologies promotes cross- and inter-disciplinary work and in 2012 showcased recent research on a wide range of cities including Detroit, Paris, London, Johannesburg, Mumbai and Beirut. Previous shows have also travelled further afield, most recently to Bucharest in 2010.

The exhibition and events feature work by undergraduates, masters and PhD students as well as academic staff and the wider community of researchers and practitioners developing new methods to tackle urban questions.

Visitors to Cities Methodologies will encountered a diverse methods of urban research in juxtaposition - from archival studies to digital media experiments, practice-led art, architectural and design work to film-making, soundscapes, games and public sculpture.
