Theory – Urban Realities Laboratory, University of Waterloo

Welcome to Urban Realities Laboratory

Join us at the Urbanspace Gallery in Toronto for “Psychology on the Street: Psycho-geographic exploration of urban life”. A fantastic opportunity to explore how the urban environment influences our psychology.

In our laboratory, we study the impact of urban design on human psychology.  We employ a wide variety of methods ranging from field studies of behaviour in urban and architectural settings to the use of immersive virtual reality to test predictions about urban behaviour in simulations.

Our goals are both to contribute to theory in environmental psychology and to develop tools that can be applied to specific problems and issues relating to the psychology of the built environment.  We welcome inquiries from potential students and collaborators both within and outside the academic domain.
