Since 2005, the team won several international and national funded research projects, as project leader and partner. This was possible due to: the consolidation of research, the increase of the team’s scientific outputs, the integration of new researchers (broadening the expertise and the scientific areas), and the submission of national and international competitive bids. During the last years, the research group focused mainly, on 4 Research Areas, and 2 Cross Cutting Key-Issues, which were:
Sustainable and ecological contribution to quality in architecture, the study of habitat and its capacity to prepare and adapt are present focuses of the research, developed at CIAUD-UPT.
This strategic focus of research combines areas related to the Integrated Master on Architecture and Urbanism (5 years). On the last years, several research projects have been awarded competitive funding and have been developed with outstanding results. The different areas of research have been strategically related, promoting common synergies.
The selected research approach has a conceptual alignment with the strategic mission of the Department, as well as with its cultural commitment and pedagogical orientation.
Areas of research:
| Sustainable Architecture
| Earthen Architecture
