The School of Architecture and Cities is involved in a variety of research activities relating to all aspects of architecture and the built environment.

We have many interests from architecture and globalisation, to the Olympics and city tourism, to city management, transport and sustainability. We also undertake research projects commissioned by central and local government, government agencies, the private sector and charitable bodies, as well as overseas agencies.

Much of our engagement in research was rated of international standard in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.

The School supports five subject groups which have an excellent record in their field:
