Research

Our teaching is research-informed. It integrates theory and practice to assist with making, thinking and designing through critical, creative and strategic inquiry on local, national and international levels. Such approach is a result of our diverse and interdisciplinary research interests

Research in architecture currently revolves around three main interests:

Critical Urbanism/Urban Ecologies
Theories and practices or urban change from the early modern period to the present, seen through cultural, social and political frameworks.

Smart Cities
Critical approaches to digital and smart cities, augmented reality, new technologies of communication, social media and their effects in changing urban and social environments and on place marking. 

Sustainable Architecture/Environmental Building
Building design and technologies for low-impact living, especially in relation to housing, in Europe and Asia. This group works together with the environmental building group.
