THE CARLETON URBAN RESEARCH LAB (c-url) AT THE AZRIELI SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE SUPPORTS DESIGN-BASED THINKING AND COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS CENTERED ON WATER, CITIES, AND EQUITY.

Architecture at all scales is based on understanding and imagining the world in terms that are simultaneously social, environmental, technological, political, cultural, and artistic. Contemporary urban challenges increase the need for creative design thinking that prioritizes human and non-human communities and ecologies.
