The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL is one of the most influential, exciting and innovative architecture schools in the world, setting the agenda for what architecture is and could be. The school has two London sites, the UCL campus in Bloomsbury and Here East at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

With a distinctive approach to research, education and innovation the school inspires its community of staff, students and partners to transform how the world is understood, how knowledge is created and shared and the way that global problems are solved. It has a diverse intellectual community, engaged with the wider world and committed to changing it for the better. This community is recognised for its radical and critical thinking and its widespread influence; with an outstanding ability to combine its education, research, innovation and enterprise for the long-term benefit of humanity.

“I see innovation as grasping opportunities for applying knowledge, skills, design ambition, technical know-how and social purpose to address the real-world challenges that we face with novel design solutions.”
