We are investigating street experiments that bridge mobility and public space functions to look at how short-term actions lead to long-term changes.

OUR RESEARCH establishes essential urban data, new methodologies and causal evidence to extend scientific understandings of social, economic and health outcomes of large-scale interventions in cities. Our work aims to turn the heads of planners and policy-makers to focus on the health and wellbeing impacts of new transport infrastructures and neighbourhood and street changes, contributing to healthy, equitable and adaptive cities and communities in Asia.

 

uLab's research is interdisciplinary on urban analytics, empirical social science, human geography, architecture, and urban studies and planning.
