Stadslab, European Urban Design Laboratory

Stadslab European Urban Design Laboratory operates as an international think tank and design laboratory for urban design in today’s cities. We develop tailor-made Master Class programs aimed at participants with a professional background in architecture, urban planning or related fields. Our programs allow hosting municipalities and regional authorities to have cases of their choice examined in one of Stadslab’s Urban Design Laboratories. The general aim of all programs is to offer intelligent design expertise to cities and regions in order to support them in creating coherent, sustainable and successful urban environments.

Stadslab is the postgraduate program of the Academy of Architecture and Urbanism, School of Fine and Performing Arts (FHK) and part of Fontys University of Applied Sciences. Fontys is one of the largest Universities of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, with nearly 40,000 students in 40 Faculties. The Academy is based in Tilburg, a modern city in the southern part of the Netherlands.
