The Transportation Infrastructure and Public Space (TIPSlab) is an interdisciplinary research group which examines the potential and implications of future transportation infrastructure. TIPSlab aims to integrate social and ecological concerns into emerging design methodologies.
A collaborative team engaged with current design theories in architecture, landscape architecture, planning and engineering, the lab speculates on future opportunities for infrastructure design and provides grounded scenarios for pulling the future closer.
The lab is a faculty wide initiative by the Faculty of Applied Science at the University of British Columbia. It is based in the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and works in collaboration with the Sauder School of Business, School of Community and Regional Planning and the varied engineering departments.
