Architectural Design and Practice

A research degree in Architecture (PhD, MPhil) with a strong design element, carried out under the supervision of a member of the Design and Practice research group.

The Design and Practice research group encourages and promotes research that is carried out through the act of design. This places the activities of the design studio and workshop on an equal footing with those of the library and laboratory.

Members of the Architectural Practice Group carry out research which might be:

  • Practice-based: whereby an original investigation is undertaken in order to gain new knowledge partly by means of practice and the outcomes of that practice. This is demonstrated through creative outcomes in the form of buildings, designs, artefacts, drawings etc.
  • Practice-led: in which the nature of practice leads to new knowledge that has operational significance for that practice. Here the primary focus of the research is to advance knowledge about practice, or to advance knowledge within practice.
