Architectural History and Theory

The Architectural History and Theory Group includes scholars engaged in a wide range of research into architectural history and theory, cultural studies, urbanism and heritage. These explore the ‘what, why, how and for whom?’ of architectural and building custom and practice, and the various changing meanings and interpretations which have been placed upon them both in the past and in contemporary culture. In a broad reading, architecture may be viewed as artefact, manifestation, symptom or agent of change, fundamental to our understanding of where we have come from and critical to the future development of the built and social environment. Members of the group conduct ground-breaking research in a number of key areas, host symposia and conferences, edit journals, curate exhibitions, and publish books, book chapters, journal articles and reviews. The group invites interest for PhD study in architectural history and theory and European heritage studies.
