The storyline of cities-focused research

The Institute brings together 14 associated
research units with unique expertise

    “As an institute, we want to build new knowledge about the integrated, sustainable design of our urban environments, passing from the technical, to the built, to the socio-cultural qualities of the city, and we want this knowledge to be shareable with other cities around the world”


    — Carmela Cucuzzella, Concordia University Research Chair in Integrated
