City Science Initiative

City Science is a research group at the Media Lab focused on intelligent, sustainable buildings, mobility systems, and cities. It explores the application of new technologies to enable urban energy efficiency and sustainability as well as enhanced opportunity, equity, and cultural creativity. The group is particularly concerned with the emerging roles of networked intelligence in fabrication and construction, urban mobility, building design and intelligently responsive operation, and in public space. The research takes a broadly multidisciplinary approach, not constrained by traditional boundaries.
