Architecture, Planning & Landscape

Our School

A decade ago, the world’s population reached a tipping point where more people now live in cities than in rural areas. As this trend accelerates, it's vital for societies to engage with all aspects of the production of designed environments. We need to further appreciate how they’re imagined, planned, modelled, drawn, constructed, inhabited, and conserved. We need to address how they allocate, consume, and generate resources. And we need to understand better how they produce communities, cultures, ideologies, and inequalities. Knowledge about designed environments can often be separated into disconnected professions with specialised languages and habits. In contrast, the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at Newcastle University both addresses our professions and works across and beyond them. Our internationally renowned experts pursue methods ranging across the social sciences, humanities, creative practice, and engineering to achieve the latest insights. We work across Europe and the globe, inspired by our place in the North East of England.
