R-Urban research project

Sustainability and Resilience

Through our research and teaching we are committed to social and environmental responsibility in the design and production of the built environment. As a School we have led on a range of initiatives that bring together our work on sustainability, participation and civic engagement.


Building Local Resilience Platform

Through this research platform we aim to bridge research that is based within climate, demographics, governance and economic stability, to develop the transformations required in a dynamic and rapidly changing world.
