We are involved in a wide variety of research activities relating to all aspects of architecture and the built environment. We undertake research projects commissioned by the 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 2014 Research Excellence Framework.  We have a wide range of interests: from architecture and globalisation, to the Olympics and city tourism, to city management, transport and sustainability. Please look at our research areas and get in touch if you would like more information.
