The Cloud Lab at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation
An experimental lab that explores the design of our environment through emerging technologies in computing, interface and device culture.
| Projects & Events
Clouds have already been utilized to expand the knowledge frontiers of science, medicine, productivity and entertainment. Clouds work through scalability and vast participation. Clouds bring new understanding to old problems and let us pose new questions. Clouds are a new way of thinking.
Our mission is to expand the knowledge frontier of architecture through the application of unique computing technologies to the physical environment. We examine how big data, mass adoption and exponential growth are restructuring space. We explore technologies and applications that promote new forms of interaction with the city.
The Cloud Lab was formed in 2010 by Mark Collins and Toru Hasegawa at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation (GSAPP).
