The Phoenix Urban Research Laboratory (PURL) is an extension of the Herberger Institute, The Design School at Arizona State University. Our interest is the design of human settlement and its relation to sustainability, social justice and cultural understanding. Through sponsored research, internships, symposia, courses, and a range of community outreach activities, PURL addresses such issues as urban livability, civic space, infill development, suburban retrofitting, urban codes, complete streets, transit-oriented development, and ultimately the central role of design and place-making in the achievement of a progressive, sustainable urbanism.
