Festivals: M:ST 4 Biennial | October 3 - 17, 2008.

The Urban Habitat Laboratory (UHL) is a mobile, self-sufficient, sustainable, compact dwelling with web camera communication ability. The UHL is a multifunctional and ever-expanding portable lab and activist centre for urban sustainability, complete with green roof and water collection capabilities. The bicycle-powered UHL uses green technologies and sustainable materials, disseminating information as the unit moves throughout the city. Urbanites can connect with the UHL in person, as the lab stops for wireless Internet connection on its nomadic urban journey, or at the 809 Exhibition Space in Kensington.
