The Humanics Lab was founded and is directed by Assist. Prof Jonathan Enns of the University of Waterloo’s School of Architecture. 

The Humanics lab was established to augment the current trend towards automation and industrialized construction in the building industry. As our professions move towards prescriptive methods (prefabrication, modularization, ‘file to factory’, automation, design for assembly etc.) to meet the current needs of our built environment, the corresponding potentials for negative externalities are magnified. We need to be doubly sure that we get these projects right.
