Our Design Labs synthesize theoretical and applied knowledge to produce innovative and speculative research that enables design to be an agent of change in society.

These labs house masters and doctoral students working on both lab projects and their theses and dissertations, guided by faculty with shared interests. The labs offer pro-seminar courses, build shared databases, generate public forums and publications and work together on common endeavors.
