Research-Remaking Cities Institute - Carnegie Mellon University

Research

The heart of the Remaking Cities Institute is in its research. RCI improves the quality of life in cities and towns through academic, applied and action-oriented research into place-making and community redevelopment. Having transitioned from an industry-based economy to a diversified technology and service-based economy, Pittsburgh serves as a laboratory for the remaking of post-industrial cities. Through its research, RCI shares lessons learned in Pittsburgh with post-industrial cities around the world.
