Rural Urban Lab is dedicated to investigating the processes of rural to urban transformation. The Lab is a platform for both design and research, supporting writing, exhibitions and the design and construction of buildings. Through a multi-disciplinary approach, the Lab collaborates with engineers, landscape architects, academics, charities and local governments. Projects include schools, community centers, hospitals, village houses, bridges, and incremental planning strategies. Building on almost ten years of active engagement in such work, the Lab has developed a unique approach to creating links between social, economic and political processes and the physical transformation of rural towns and villages. Much of its work operates as Rural Urban Framework – an award-winning collaboration between Joshua Bolchover and John Lin.
