School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape

Histories + Cultures

ARC theme: Histories + Cultures

Theme Projects

We are concerned both with the forms of landscapes, buildings and places and the political, cultural and conceptual contexts which shape their production and our understanding of them. We are one of the largest and strongest groupings of historians and theorists in any UK architecture school, and consequently our work covers a wide range of topics, addressing real and imaginary conditions and diverse geographies and periods - past, present and future.  Our approach is often both interdisciplinary and collaborative.
