Profile Information

School of architecture and design

The School of Architecture and Design is home to a community of academics and practitioners whose work focuses on key issues of social and environmental concern. Research is central to our academic practice and often informed by our professional work. Our research encompasses applied and theoretical approaches in equal measure and much of it is marked by interdisciplinarity and international cooperation, through leadership and participation in major grant projects. 

We study themes of global importance in local contexts and engage with local concerns from a global perspective. As a design school, we embrace a wide range of methodologies, including scientific, humanities, and design research. We aim to bring these dimensions into our teaching at all levels of study, including and in particular our growing postgraduate research culture, and interlink our research with the world of professional architectural and design practices and our professional bodies. 

 

 

School of Architecture and Design researchers are at the forefront of international work on the circular economy, urban farming, and social design and engaged in preventive healthcare design, studies in communal land use, and feminist pedagogies.
