    Our research reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of architecture and urbanism, focusing on real-world problems.

Our research in architecture reflects the multi and trans-disciplinary nature of architecture and urbanism and focuses on real-world problems and improving peoples’ lives.

We’re renowned for our commitment to addressing environmental and societal challenges facing the built environment, in local and global contexts.

Our research within the Department of Architecture is centred on two key themes reflecting the broad impact of our research activities:

Sustainability & the built environment

Urbanism & Global Cities

In keeping with the University’s strategic aims, we have developed strong links with industry, numerous European and international connections, and a capability to undertake trans-disciplinary research that integrates sustainable design, engineering and technology and cultural enquiry from local, regional, and global perspectives.
