Architecture/Faculty

Uses of buildings change – architecture remains. The study of building typology asks questions about the aspects of buildings that shape their use, morphology and spatial design.
The history and evolution of these aspects provide precedents and analytical foundations both for designing new buildings and also for conversion, new use and subsequent use of existing buildings. The most ‘sustainable’ building typologies are without doubt those that have proven themselves over centuries. The Institute of Design and Building Typology is interested in the architectures that exhibit this kind of lasting success and in how they can be reinvented and developed in contemporary ways.
