Organisation profile

The Centre for Advanced Studies in Architecture (CASA) supports collaborative research crossing the boundaries between:

  • architectural history and theory
  • contemporary design and urbanism
  • archaeology and conservation
  • digital technologies
  • design management
  • integrated design and practice.

Our academics hold Visiting Professorships at universities around the world. We have a strong track record of invited keynote presentations at international conferences, and are engaged in public dissemination via exhibitions and events. We are also involved in a variety of externally funded projects.
