Our research is carried out within the Manchester Architecture Research Group (MARG).
We are particularly interested in:
- architecture and politics;
- networks of expertise;
- design processes and users;
- architecture and the Anthropocene;
- architectures of temporality;
- event/media architecture.
We draw upon a wide range of interdisciplinary research interests through our ongoing collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). We also have research links to discipline areas such as:
- art history;
- popular culture;
- structural engineering.
The opportunities we provide for collaborative architectural research are unparalleled, and research bids in a variety of disciplines are strengthened by the involvement of our researchers.

Our staff and students are using their expertise to make an impact on local and international communities.
Our PhD students look beyond technical design to the processes that run through the development, adaptation and use of built environments.
