The Urban Context Laboratory is a directed research design/making seminar that investigates architectural and urban design methodologies through the lens of equity, sustainability, and justice. Advanced design research methodologies for site analysis, program development and conceptual design will be tested on an urban site that is subject to multiple pressures including densification, marginalization, or other structural inequities. New York City will be the laboratory in which ideas about equitable development, adaptive re-use, infill, and conservation will be explored, in dialogue with a set of community, institutional and private-sector stakeholders.
