Designing the future
Designing for today’s built environment requires architects to develop empirically tested, data-driven designs and to share this knowledge and expertise with the world. Waterloo Engineering and University of Waterloo School of Architecture researchers explore all facets of the built environment, from building performance and materials to large-scale infrastructure and systems as well as the challenges of urbanization and globalization.
