Art and Design

In art and design we have a world-leading research environment for the study, innovation and public dissemination of contemporary fine art, architecture, design and visual culture.

Our research centres and platforms create opportunities for sharing, collaboration and guidance for individual researchers. 

Notable recent projects include our work in creating replicas of the Staffordshire and Cheapside jewellery hoards for museums, and ergonomic furniture design.
