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.

The Carleton Urban Research Lab was founded by Professors Ozayr Saloojee and Catherine Bonier in January of 2017, with the support of Azrieli School Director Jill Stoner. C-URL promotes design thinking — seeking ways to expand research, teaching, and engagement around the Lab’s three central themes — water, cities, and equity. Professors Saloojee and Bonier build upon their own expertise in the areas of architecture and urbanism to establish ongoing transdisciplinary collaborations with university, government, and private entities within Canada as well as internationally.
