Built Environment research is about cities, people, places, property, buildings, design, infrastructure, environment, landscapes, institutions, and the complex interactions between them.

It addresses a spectrum of vital policy and theoretical issues across a range of scales from different disciplinary perspectives examining Australian and international problems. Our overall mission statement is geared towards designing, delivering and managing sustainable 21st century cities and all their critical elements.

The faculty offers a collegiate and supportive research environment facilitating high quality and innovative research by both staff and students.
