Led by Pritzker Prize-winning architect and UCLA Distinguished Professor Thom Mayne and Director Eui-Sung Yi, The Now Institute operates within UCLA Architecture & Urban Design (A.UD). The Now Institute is a dedicated URBAN PLANNING and RESEARCH CENTER that focuses on the IMPLEMENTATION of URBAN STRATEGIES.
Complex problems in modern advanced metropolises and informal settlements demand the interrogation and strategic planning borne from urban research. For the past 15 years, the Now Institute have partnered with various private and public entities to address real urban issues of cultural and resource sustainability, resilience, mobility, migration and density. Spanning cities across the world, including Los Angeles, New Orleans, Madrid, Beijing and Port-au-Prince, the Now Institute establishes new territory that synergizes ideas and action between research and professional pursuits.
The Now Institute seeks qualified and dedicated applicants for the entering class of 2018-2019.
The complexity of contemporary urbanism demands an inquisitive and knowledgeable mind that spans the spectrum from policy to physical planning. Within this spectrum, we locate strategic solutions that address the challenges and problems facing our built environment. As urban designers and physical planners, we are interested in the physical geo-spatial realities of our cities to enhance, form and catalyze the urban solutions.
