UrbanLab is as a collaborative office practicing architecture and urbanism. Founded by Sarah Dunn and Martin Felsen, UrbanLab has been the recipient of numerous honors including winning the City of the Future competition. UrbanLab’s current projects include a study for the implementation of fifty “Eco-Boulevards” (linear parks) throughout Chicago and a comprehensive masterplan for Aurora, the second largest city in Illinois.
UrbanLab is also a research laboratory actively engaged in examining the City and the Chicago megalopolis. The research projects are an effort to document a broad informational context for those currently working on and/or thinking about the design and planning of Chicago.
Both Dunn and Felsen are graduates of the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) at Columbia University in New York City. Dunn is an Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Felsen is an Associate Studio Professor in the College of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology. In addition, Dunn and Felsen were recently named Directors of Archeworks, Chicago’s alternative design school.
