This presentation aims to provide an overview of how PEARL (UCL's Person-Environment-Activity Research Lab) can help cities to understand person-environment interactions through its unique ability to simulate urban environments at 1-1 scale. This includes the ability to control its lighting, acoustic, physical and smell attributes so that we can better understand how these different features might affect diverse urban populations in any given project. We will demonstrate how we have improved a variety of urban projects thus far which have focused on the impact of different environmental stimuli on various user groups. We will invite participants to bring their own urban issues and project ideas to the table. Together, we will explore how we might address these issues or test ideas at PEARL. We will end with an invitation for participants to visit PEARL in person and experience the life-sized simulation it has to offer their City.
