Engaging the city through design, research, and education.
cityLAB explores the challenges facing the 21st century metropolis through research and design, expanding the possibilities for cities to grow more livably, sustainably, and beautifully.
cityLAB functions thanks to a group of researchers, academics, faculty, students, community members, public citizens, muses, and sponsors. Learn more about the people behind cityLAB.
Rather than a list of projects, the cityLAB portfolio contains a series of ongoing investigations that manifest in mulfiple forms, such as research, publication, policy, exhibition, and prototype.
cityLAB finds its place in the public academy, UCLA, allowing it to engage a variety of educational endeavors, such as the Urban Humanities Initiative.
