The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism and the Humanities launched in 2014 to advance interdisciplinary inquiry on a range of global urban issues across the fields of architecture, design and the humanities. The intellectual core of the Princeton- Mellon Initiative is the Mellon Forum for Research on the Urban Environment.

The Mellon Forum is organized by 2016-2017 Princeton-Mellon Fellow Sarah Lopez and takes place select Mondays and Wednesdays. Events are free and open to the public.

Support comes from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Princeton University School of Architecture, Humanities Council, Program in Latin American Studies, Program in Urban Studies, Program in Canadian Studies, Office of Population Research, Department of History, and Department of English.
