Spotlights and testimonials from students who have graduated from the Centre for Research Architecture.

The Centre for Research Architecture is a pedagogical experiment and political project that sits at the intersection of many fields and disciplines from architecture and media to law and climate science.

Practitioners from a wide-range of backgrounds will find themselves working within new conceptual frameworks and developing cutting-edge tools for undertaking spatial research and critical analysis.

Our work is organised around practice-led research that investigates the urgent political conditions of our time.
