Research and Innovation Priorities Announced at SoA

Nov. 6, 2018

"We are developing a supportive research culture for SoA that will facilitate industry engagement and positive impact from our research outputs," said Dr Steffen Lehmann, Director of the School of Architecture. "Research and innovation activities in the SoA are re-organized in 7 theme-based Labs which define our priority research concentrations. I believe architects and designers are in a unique position to address and influence the complex issues of urbanization, climate change and social challenges."

These are the key areas of our research excellence aligned with faculty specialization, and each Lab benefits from groups and networks supporting the meaningful research activities:
