All are welcome at the launch of two new grant-funded research projects being held at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment.

Monsoon Assemblages is a five-year long research project aiming to confront challenges of urban climate change through novel, theoretically driven spatial enquiries into the impacts of urbanisation on monsoon climates in three of South Asia’s rapidly growing cities, Chennai, Delhi and Dhaka, with wider application for other cities. Professor Simon Joss of the International Eco-Cities Initiative will be a member of the Advisory Board for this project.

Public Spaces and the Role of the Architect is a three-year comparative study of influential modernist and contemporary examples in London and São Paulo (PS), in partnership with members of the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of São Paulo, examining the role of design in fostering greater democratic authorship and ownership of the public realm.
