School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape

School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape

Our leading scholars produce the latest knowledge across and beyond our professions. Our education engages students with the latest research and professional ideas.

The world’s population is urbanising rapidly. As this trend accelerates, it's vital for societies to engage with how designed environments get produced.

We need to 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 better understand how they produce communities, cultures, ideologies, and inequalities.

Knowledge about designed environments can often get separated into disconnected professions with specialised languages and habits. In contrast, our School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape both addresses our professions and works beyond them.

Our internationally renowned experts pursue methods ranging across the social sciences, humanities, engineering, creative practice, and biotechnology to achieve the latest insights. And our teaching aims to equip students to lead the professions and vocations they'll retire from.

We work across Europe and the globe, inspired by our place in north-east England.
