Research at The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment covers the full spectrum of the built environment
from architecture, construction & project management and planning to
advanced spatial analysis, complex built environment systems,
development planning, energy and space.
This research is undertaken by a wide range of professionals and specialists, as well as interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teams. It involves architects, builders, constructors, designers, engineers and planners, alongside critics, historians, philosophers and theorists, as well as construction managers, facilities managers and project managers, together with 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, critically-aware and theory-refuting, and also community-engaged, industry-facing, invention-generated, knowledge-building and policy-informing.
Our geographic spread is also hugely diverse, working from the micro and local scales to regional, national and global dimensions. Just some of the countries we work in include Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Benin, Brazil, China, Columbia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Malta, Mexico, Namibia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Senegal, Spain, South Korea, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Uganda, United Kingdom and the USA.
