P-REX lab

P-REX lab is a research group focused on environmental problems caused by urbanization, including the design, remediation, and reuse of waste landscapes worldwide. All of our research and work emphasizes the link between our consumption of natural resources, and the waste and destruction of landscape, to help us better understand how to proceed with redesigning around our wasteful lifestyles for more intelligent design and development outcomes. Unlike conventional practice, there are no scalar limits in our outlook or pedagogy: projects are defined by the extent of the urban and environmental problems being addressed. We coined the term “Systemic Design” to describe our approach, which seeks to holistically reintegrate disvalued landscapes into urbanized territories and regional ecologies.
