senseofplace LAB emerges in the interdisciplinary space of art, architecture and social engagement. It was founded as an artistic laboratory by Laura Halsey Brown in San Francisco in 2008, based on research/art in New York and the Netherlands since 2000.
senseofplace LAB develops collaborative projects and art works that connect people to place. A social engagement process may begin a project, with a focus on looking more closely at place. The materials produced become a public art work; the context of art is used to frame unmeditated community voices - regarding places that matter to them.
