All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site

Housing Plans for the Future reveals the complex and ambiguous use of architecture as a means of containment and control within social housing in Belfast.

Book Launch - Housing Plans For The Future by Professor Donovan Wylie, Belfast School of Art

Housing Plans for the Future reveals the complex and ambiguous use of architecture as a means of containment and control within social housing in Belfast. The defensive structures built between 1970s and 8Os are experienced via a series of walks through the neighbourhoods of the inner city. A largely unrecognised facet of conflict-era architecture, this seemingly benign environment functions as a legacy of the Northern lreland conflict.
