Areas of interest - Architectural Theory and History

Architectural Theory and History

The Architectural Theory and History Research Group at the University of Sydney advances scholarship in the architectural humanities. With strength in the architectural uptake of continental philosophy, studies in the architectural consequences of postmodern culture, and in the agency of historical knowledge in architecture, the Group provides a platform for the work of approximately fifty academic staff and PhD students.

Areas of research interest

Each of the Group’s four units maintain a programme of seminars, workshops and other opportunities for discussion and research training. These units focus on architectural theory, Asian architecture and urbanism, civic and sacred modernism, and postmodern culture. All events are open to members of the University community and to members of the general public.

For further information contact Professor Andrew Leach (
