Research

The MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism has four primary areas of inquiry addressing the most critical challenges to the future of urbanism. We seek collaboration with companies, government agencies, non-profit organizations, professional groups, and others to continue growing the research areas. Current research areas include: Climate + Urbanism, Environment + Urbanism, Technology + Urbanism, and Global + Urbanism.
