School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape



Engagement brings together researchers and the public in order to generate mutual benefit, with all parties learning from each other through sharing knowledge, expertise and skills.

In the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape engagement is a core value of our disciplines. We explore the relationship between people, spaces and places.  Much of our teaching is directed toward developing professionals who can contribute to making places and buildings that enrich the quality of our society and our research and teaching are intertwined with practice. These pages highlight a few of our engaged teaching and research projects, many of which depend on the contribution of our students.
