The Community, Housing & Identity Lab (CHIL) is a testing ground for students who are interested in the social and political impact of architecture. 

Directed by Professor Germane Barnes, CHIL understands that the built environment is manipulated by factors that extend beyond conventional construction procedures and attempts to highlight the narratives of marginalized communities. Past projects include exhibition design and fabrication for Broward County as well as participation in the Museum of Modern Art NY: Reconstructions exhibition. Current projects include community design for Delray Beach and participation in the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
