Art, Architecture and Design

The Leeds School of Art, Architecture & Design has practice at its heart. Whether working in our studio spaces in Broadcasting Place or working site-specifically, live projects and making are essential to everything we do. This strength is in our courses and is also reflected in our staff, who are practitioners and researchers of national and international standing.
