Monash University XYX Lab

Monash University XYX Lab is a team of experienced design researchers who operate at the intersection of gender, identity, urban space and advocacy. Through our research, we bring together planners, policymakers, local government and stakeholders to make the experiences of underrepresented communities in urban space and planning tangible. XYX Lab is grounded in feminist and queer theory and activated through real-world projects. Our approach is inclusive of all gender and sexual identities. Building equity into urban life requires a long-term vision and a strategic – often radical – approach to the design process. We do not seek quick-fix design solutions but rather seek to offer insights and create moments that contribute towards a larger movement for change.
