The School of Architecture and Planning is home to five internationally-regarded research centers through which students learn, work and collaborate with faculty and community partners. Our faculty also hold leadership roles on university-wide research centers with transdisciplinary missions. This research infrastructure provides key applied learning, professional engagement and scholarship development opportunities for students across the disciplines of architecture, urban planning and environmental design.

Coming Soon: Design for Resilient Environments Lab

Check back soon for more information on the Design for Resilient Environments Lab (DRE_Lab), a transdisciplinary team of researchers, citizen scientists and designers who co-investigate critical concerns in and with communities who are vulnerable to urbanization. The center is directed by Kristine Stiphany, UB assistant professor of architecture.
