School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape



Engagement within wider society is central to our discipline and, specifically, our exploration of the relationships between people, spaces and places. Much of our teaching is directed towards developing professionals who can contribute to making places and buildings that enrich the quality of our society, and our research and teaching is intertwined with practice.

Our approach to engagement aims to be inclusive, reactive and supportive to ideas from colleagues, partners and alumni about ways to broaden or deepen our impact on society. A commitment to fostering staff initiatives has created a rich and lively culture of engagement in the School. This culture encompasses both research and teaching led by our academic staff and in conjunction with practicing professionals.
