We offer critical research looking beyond design, and unrivalled postgraduate opportunities.

Our expertise is based on theoretical experimentation, methodological rigor, empirical attention, hands-on studies of architectural practice, building technology, and techniques of architectural representation and mapping.

Our PhD programme is open to students with an interest in any aspect of architectural research, but we particularly welcome applications in the following areas:

  • pragmatist turn in architecture
  • anthropology of architectural production
  • transdisciplinarity in architecture
  • mobility of architectural discourse
  • zero-carbon architectures
  • the politics of construction
