Faculty / Directorate
Leicester School of Architecture (LSA) sits in the Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities, which allows us to place inter-disciplinary thinking and collaborations central to the School. We show how different disciplines can positively disrupt one another, revealing new ways of seeing, thinking and making. Art, industry, humanities and design converge to tackle real world issues and speculate and propose new futures.
LSA delivers an advanced enquiry-led education, designed to prepare and challenge students to take a personal and critical position in the globalised architectural world. Our community is a place where academics, practitioners and students are co-designing new ways of thinking and meaningfully challenging conventions to redefine the future of practice. Our courses are designed to prepare students for the changing nature of the profession and have a strong tradition of excellence in teaching (TEF Gold) underpinned by world-class research and strong industry links in the professional fields of architecture, construction, urban design and environmental design.
