Birmingham School of Architecture and Design is an interdisciplinary community of researchers, practitioners, teachers and makers who are involved in the production and evaluation of space through different scales in the centre of Birmingham. 

We have an internationally excellent environment for practice-led research across different scales with a wide network of international partners and research collaborators. 

The research culture in the school is supported with a rich diversity of live and collaborative projects, seminars, conferences, workshops and exhibitions. There are five main research themes across the school: 

  1. Future Living, Sustainable and Digital Design
  2. Cultural Context: Histories, Theory and Heritage
  3. Collaborative and Creative Practices
  4. Urbanism and Wellbeing
  5. Design Pedagogies
