Architecture and Interiors Research

Research into many aspects of the built environment, including spatial design, urban development and architecture, is fostered at the University of Brighton. 

Staff encourage and promote the wide variety of research being done across a number of subject areas and disciplines, to form research collaborations across the university, and to maximise the impact of this research locally, regionally and internationally. We engage in academic research, research consultancy and research-by-design projects with stakeholders in the city of Brighton and Hove, the southeast region and beyond.

The department works to develop research excellence and impact in key areas as well as providing an ideal environment for early career researchers. We offer postgraduate research degrees drawing on this research experience.  For other courses in architecture and design please visit our courses website.
