ABQ+UNM CityLab Opening
CityLab is a partnership between the City of Albuquerque and the University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning, where students get to work on city projects. Students are provided a space of approximately 3,000 square feet in the historic Sears building downtown.
Funding for a two-year lease will come from the Planning Department's operating budget. UNM students will work on city projects in the areas of architecture, landscape architecture and planning.
The students will primarily work on tasks for Route 66 Planning and Design project, as well as other city tasks. This partnership will not only move the City forward but will also provide the next generation of professionals an opportunity to contribute to the planning and design of our City.
Some key players in the implementation of this project are the Mayor's Office, the Planning Department, and the UNM School of Architecture and Planning.
