CONF UCL Urban Laboratory Cities Methodologies 2012. London, UK. 4.-7.7.2012


UCL Slade Research Centre
Woburn Square, London

4-7 July, 2012

Inaugurated in 2009, Cities Methodologies is an initiative to showcase innovative methods of urban research from across UCL and the wider urban research community. Through peer-reviewed exhibits and events, it draws together undergraduate, masters, and doctoral research, alongside work produced by academics and other researchers and practitioners. Cities Methodologies promotes cross- and inter-disciplinary work and this year showcases recent research on a wide range of cities including Detroit, Paris, London, Johannesburg, Mumbai and Beirut.

This year, through a public call for participants, we particularly welcomed proposals on:

  • Collaborative/public methods for urban research;
  • Mega events and urban change;
  • Housing and dishousing.

Visitors to Cities Methodologies will encounter diverse methods of urban research in juxtaposition – from archival studies to digital media experiments, practice-led art, architectural and design work to film-making, soundscapes, games and public sculpture.

All events are free and open to the public. For full programme of events and exhibitors please click here
