URBANlab is a research collective that focuses on advanced spatial issues in the built environment. It is comprised of a network of CCA Faculty, students, and professional consultants that operate locally and globally. The lab’s transcalar agenda integrates the role of landscape, architecture and urban design through research and design-based curriculum at CCA. Research themes include visualization of the urban environment, peripheral territories, urban ecologies, logistical infrastructure, and resource extraction urbanism. The mediums of output for the lab include publications, symposia, workshops, lecture series, and exhibitions. Current projects include Hydrogeographies, The Petropolis of Tomorrow, and Design Agency.
