The lab’s research is professionally applied in fields such as smart cities, experience design, urban health, digital placemaking, and community engagement. It demonstrates the application of urban interfaces and investigates their impact in these domains. The Lab’s work is based on human-centered design principles but also challenges traditional approaches by considering ecological systems in the design of urban interfaces. This multi-disciplinary approach sets the Lab’s research apart and allows for a more holistic understanding of how cities can be improved through technology.
