Add to your list(s) Send you e-mail reminders

The Martin Centre Research Seminar Series is one of the longest running in the field (51st annual series), and is hosted and supported by the Martin Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies; the research arm of the Department of Architecture.

The seminars are informal in format and include a 45-minute talk from the invited speaker, followed by 15-minutes of questions and answers. They are typically well-attended by both staff and students of the Department, as well as members from the wider University and Cambridge community. The seminars are video recorded for Martin Centre records, and subject to the speaker’s approval may be released to either University members only or the general public.

Theme for the 51st annual series:

The topic for this forthcoming series will frame the discussions around the common ground between theory and practice, with particular focus on ‘Architecture and Energy’. Please find Term Cards and seminar posters posted on the righthand side of this page.
