ALI is an education, research, and outreach center providing site-specific, data-intensive modeling, planning, and design services to partner communities, urban and rural. Students and researchers come from backgrounds in architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, urban design, science, policy, and the arts and humanities. 


ALI enjoys collaborations with national and regional membership associations of architects and the allied design professions; every accredited design program in California, research universities across the US and abroad, and partner communities in California and the west. ALI has benefitted from a close working relationship with science and policy advisors at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.
