About the Urban Lab

 

Welcome on the website of the Urban Lab. U/Lab has been established to strengthen the link between university and practice. We work on urban challenges for a diverse range of clients: ministries, provinces, municipalities, water boards and NGO's. We often do this in collaboration with other universities such as the Fontys and the HAS.

The Urban Lab offers Master design studios, research seminars and winter- and summer schools. This page will be used to share created work, as well as sharing events.

The aim of the Urban Lab at the TU/e is to help cities learn to become better. We believe the key for improvement is in connecting knowledge with urban challenges in practice. 

The Urban Lab is accommodated within the chair of Urbanism and Urban Architecture (UUA) at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). We are situated on the 7th floor of the Faculty of the Built Environment in an open work and office space that is suitable for a wide variety of additional uses, such as studio tutoring, project presentations, lectures, exhibitions, gatherings and even symposiums.
