Research is a big part of what we do at WSA as it leads to new understandings that are important in their own right, but also informs our teaching and impacts the outside world.
The School and its staff are recognised nationally and internationally for research in:
- The low carbon built environment
- People and the built environment
- Architecture and its historical and cultural context
- Design research
Our research groups
For over 25 years, the Architectural Science Group (ASG) has undertaken interdisciplinary research on sustainability and the sustainable management of the built environment, from individual components, through whole buildings, to community urban and city scales.
The work of the Architectural History and Theory Group (AHTG) embraces a wide range of interests, as reflected in its research projects, publications, and other activities.
The Design and Practice Research Group (DPRG) was formed in 2010 to encourage and promote research that is carried out through the act of design.
