About us

We have gained an international reputation as a leading centre of architectural scholarship, with a vibrant research environment that hosts a series of visiting speakers, symposia, workshops, exhibitions, and debates.

MARG's institutional setting is unique, being hosted both by The University of Manchester within the School of Environment, Education and Development, and by the Manchester School of Architecture.

This allows us to benefit from synergies with planning, geography, and a number of humanities disciplines, and at the same time from engagements with the production of architectural knowledge in the context of an architectural school.

Through these connections, we have developed a distinctive expertise based on theoretical experimentation, methodological rigor, empirical attention, hands-on studies of architectural practice, building technology, and techniques of architectural representation and mapping.
