Private: Welcome to MORE 2022

PHD STUDENTS IN the School of Architecture + Cities are engaged in wide-ranging areas of research that fall within and across the School’s five research groups: Architectural Humanities; Emerging Territories; Making and Practice; Place and Experience; Transport and Mobilities. Recently completed theses have made pioneering contributions to global scholarship on climate change, active travel, childhood mobility, public space and heritage policy.

In addition to standard PhDs, we continue to supervise students working towards PhD by Published Work and PhD by Practice. The practice and published work models offer routes into postgraduate study for outstanding professionals with an established body of work and have also helped to forge valuable connections with industry. This year, the School hosted the 2022 Architectural Humanities Research Association Graduate Student Symposium. The symposium, which featured presentations from students from across the world as well as those from Westminster, explored the theme of ‘voices in architecture’.
