Lacis was created in 2004 as a way to continue the research on inclusion, sustainability and the built environment developed by Professor Raquel Blumenschein in her doctorate by the Sustainable Development Center (CDS) of UnB. Thus, the CDS has become partner of the Faculty of architecture and Urbanism (FAU) in the formation of the lab.

In 2010, after the enlargement and restructuring process of the Lacis, College UnB Range (FGA) also became a partner in the project.

Over a decade, the lab has conducted dozens of studies on the themes proposed in its conception.
