The History of Architecture and Design research group brings together members of the Art History department engaged in architectural and design history, in the early modern and modern periods. The group shares a commitment to investigating the relationships between place, space and society as expressed historically through the built environment; it values design for interiors and urban and rural environments alongside a strong tradition of research on individual architects and buildings. The group has particular strengths in British architecture and design, and European modernism, and incorporates a strong set of interests in critical heritage studies for the uses of the material past in the present.
The group welcomes applications from potential students interested in pursuing these questions from the seventeenth century to the present day, and has experience in the supervision of both full- and part-time students through to completion. Although some of our students have already studied with the Open University, others join us from elsewhere.
