Informal Cities Lab
The Informal Cities Lab undertakes design-based, action research into and within the conditions of informality in developing cities.
With a focus on the Asia-Pacific region, the Lab works collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams and international development stakeholders at the intersection of academic research and international development.
The Lab explores critical questions surrounding the socio-political, environmental and economic contexts and their relationship to transforming urban slum environments.
