Research at The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment covers the full spectrum of the built environment
from architecture, construction and project management, to planning,
advanced spatial analysis, complex built environment systems,
development in the Global South, energy and sustainability and space.
This research is undertaken by a wide range of professionals and specialists, as well as interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teams. Our research involves architects, builders, constructors, designers, engineers and planners, alongside critics, historians, philosophers and theorists, as well as construction and facilities professionals, project managers, economists, physicists and scientists.
It means doing research which is aesthetically attuned, conceptually driven, imaginatively inspired and experimentally motivated, as well as evidence based, analytically focused, and critically aware. As a faculty, we are engaged with our community and industry, and our researchers are passionate about invention and innovation, developing knowledge and informing policy.
Our geographic spread is also hugely diverse. We work from the micro and local scales to regional, national and global dimensions. Just some of the locations we work in include Australia, Africa, Europe, India and Bangladesh, China, South America, South East Asia, the USA and the United Kingdom.
