Place, Culture and Identity
Space and architecture are shaped by the culture and the identities of communities as much as those communities are shaped by their perception and use of space and architecture.
Members of the group investigate this dynamic dialectical relationship from different disciplinary perspectives, including (interior) architecture, anthropology, urban conservation and history.
Focusing on different types of places in various parts of the world (including urban, rural, contemporary, historic and vernacular ones), the aim of the Place, Culture and Identity group is to gain a better theoretical understanding of both the nature of the process of place-making and the way it dialectically relates to aspects of culture, identity, aesthetics, memory, tradition, representation and architectural practice.
Our research had significant academic impact in a range of fields and disciplines, including vernacular architecture studies and urban conservation and regeneration. In terms of wider impact, research outcomes are disseminated to a wider audience via exhibitions, social media platforms and open access databases.
