The Monash Urban Lab distinguishes itself through its unique integration of practice-based design and urban planning research. The Lab combines multi-scalar architectural design investigations with policy studies focussed on transitioning to sustainable and equitable urban environments and communities at city and regional scales.

Our research focuses on three areas of investigation: Sustainable and Inclusive Cities, Urban Infrastructure Systems, and Visualising Urban Futures. Select an area below to learn more.
