The Birmingham School of Architecture and Design

Collaborative and interdisciplinary research.

Research at the Birmingham School of Architecture and Design has grown from the disciplines of landscape architecture, architecture, design for future living, interior architecture and design, and product and furniture design. Our research draws on this inter and trans-disciplinarily in order to contribute to international and national research agendas and policies in relation to the designed environment. From the scale of the product or a piece of furniture right through to the scale of the city and landscape, our work has a strong emphasis of collaboration between the school and the city’s communities.
