A COMPREHENSIVE SINO FRENCH LAB TO ADDRESS CRUCIAL CITY ISSUES
Understand the City
ComplexCity Lab is an interdisciplinary sino-french joint research laboratory. It aims to study the city, and to a greater extent, urban systems. We are taking an innovative approach which combines the analytical and computational capabilities of engineering sciences with the openness and creativeness of humanities and social sciences.
Complex Urban System
We consider the city as a complex system composed of a very large number of heterogeneous, dynamic, constantly mutative entities in non-linear interaction with each other at various scales. Exploring and analyzing this system leads us to technological, organizational and social innovations to enhance today's cities and help design the cities of tomorrow.
