The BASC Lab (Bioclimatic and Sociotechnical Cities Lab) focuses on a human-centred approach to enhance urban design and town planning.
With a systems perspective that acknowledges the complexity of delivering sustainable urban environments we research, teach, and design to optimise urban climate and urban comfort.
We are part of both the Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems (CHF-STS) and the School of Law and Society, and we engage widely with industry and local communities.
