The Environmental Modeling Lab (EMLab) is an applied research unit of the Weitzman School of Design’s McHarg Center, specializing in the analysis, simulation, and visualization of environmental systems.
The EMLab is positioned to work productively with both academic and private-sector partners in order to expand the role of sensing, simulation and modeling within contemporary landscape architecture practice, in addition to serving as a bridge between the design fields and the work of infrastructural and ecological engineering. This work takes the form of grant and competition collaborations, consultancy and landscape monitoring contracts, applied research projects, and education/coursework.
