Postgraduate Architecture Research Interests


The School has three primary concerns:

  • The creation of responsive and sustainable architecture one where beauty and meaning are expressed through a clear understanding of the means by which it is made and functions, serving the needs of individuals and expressing the cultural aspirations of society.
  • The School’s teaching of construction, structures, material grammar and environmental design are regarded as central to, and inseparable from, design teaching.
  • The act of imagination which transforms the functional and material elements in architecture such that it may be discussed as communicable art.

These concerns are not prescriptive but they are an important part of our shared culture of “creative realism” in which the student is encouraged to find his or her own personal position.

We have excellent studio, workshop and IT facilities, offering you a lively, creative environment for study


Student society

We have an established student society ADAS (Association of Dundee Architectural Students) which is organised solely by the students and organises an extensive series of visiting lecturers from throughout the world.


Independent visits

By Level 5 students have reached a stage where they are encouraged to develop their own research question within a specialist unit. This can result in independent visits by students to a variety of locations around the world. In recent years students have travelled to a variety of locations in Europe, to New York, Egypt, Mexico, Greek Islands and also the Orkney Islands.
