AVATAR Laboratory

AVATAR is conceived as a cross-unit research group and has an agenda that explores all manner of digital and visceral terrains including their augmentation and symbiosis.

The Advanced Virtual and Technological Architecture Research (AVATAR) Laboratory was founded in September 2004 at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London by Professor Neil Spiller. It is now based in the School of Architecture, Design & Construction at the University of Greenwich.

Over recent years AVATAR has grown into an international research collaborative centre with associates at MIT, Cornell, Rensaalar, Ann Arbor, Berkley in the USA, Waterloo in Canada and scientists in Odense, Denmark. It attracts students from around the world who are encouraged to explore a critical mix of cultural, aesthetic and social agendas.
