Welcome to UCL Urban Laboratory
Established in 2005, Urban Lab investigates, proposes and disseminates 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.
We draw on a wide range of urban expertise and research methodologies, based on exchange and collaboration between researchers from across the institution, including The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, and UCL's faculties of Social and Historical Sciences, Engineering, and Arts and Humanities.
Urban Lab delivers the Global Urbanism MASc programme, a transdisciplinary postgraduate degree that cuts radically across arts, humanities, social sciences and technology studies.
We actively promote participatory approaches to urban research, working in partnership with a range of different non-academic, business, and community-based organisations.
