(C-URL) Carleton Urban Research Lab
Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism
The Carleton Urban Research Lab (c-url) at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism supports design-based thinking and collaborative projects centred on the entwined issues of water, cities, and equity. Architecture at all scales is based on understanding and imagining environmental conditions and technical interventions in terms that are simultaneously social, political, cultural, and artistic. Challenges around globalization, urbanization, environment, energy, infrastructure, and mass migration increase the need for creative design thinking, which equally values human factors and quantifiable data.
