The Derby City Lab is based on the concept of Urban Rooms in cities such as London, Amsterdam and Shanghai.
The Lab houses the new Derby City Model, a 300-year timeline of the city and the City Living Room. Visitors can also view the University of Derby’s DUST project on Derby’s Urban Sustainable Transition.
The Lab also hosts dynamic exhibitions and discussion groups focused on ideas to regenerate Derby.
In 2023, the collaboration behind the Derby City Lab won a prestigious national award from the leading property and investment magazine, Estates Gazette, in recognition of its Public/Private Partnership concept.
