Established in 2005, Urban Lab are a world-leading centre for cross-disciplinary urban research, teaching and impact. They investigate, propose, and disseminate critical solutions to a wide range of social, physical and technological urban and built environment issues, with a focus on the grand challenges of our time.
Over a drinks reception they will present a number of their recent projects with the staff and students involved in our activities, alongside a chance to pick up some of their publications and to meet students from other urban courses at the university.
The event will also act as a launch for two new Urban Laboratory projects:
Counterspeculations audio-visual tour

Power to the Citizen!
A manifesto for the public authoring of our cities, identifing new collaborative mechanisms for citizen-led digital city making. Produced by Dr Claire McAndrew (Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL) in collaboration with the UCL Urban Laboratory and UCL Engineering Exchange.
The event is open to all UCL students with an interest in urban topics and issues.
