Summary

The work of the Architectural History and Theory Group (AHTG) embraces a wide range of interests, as reflected in its research projects, publications, and other activities. They are linked by a common concern with understanding the histories and theories of architecture - including its practice, making and education - within the situated realities of its cultures and contexts.

Students enrolling for an MPhil or PhD become members of the School’s Architectural History and Theory Group (AHTG). The group, which forms the core of our research community, holds regular seminars and provides a lively and intimate forum for the discussion of ideas among staff and students.

The AHTG organises international conferences, and the following research journals are edited by members of the group: Architectural Research Quarterly, MADE, and South Asian Studies.

In recent years, for example, the Group has hosted international conferences exploring the themes of Primitive, Quality, and Economy. Regular WSA seminars provide a lively forum for the exchange of ideas among staff and students.
