The Architectural Science research group seeks to understand and manage the phenomena affecting building performance, and also the effects of buildings on external and internal environments, and their occupants. Our research activities are organised into three labs: Indoor Environmental Quality Lab, Spatial Audio + Acoustics Lab, and the Lighting Lab.

Architectural science research undertaken in the Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning is world class. We combine cutting edge research infrastructure, a critical mass of world-leading research personnel, and a research environment conducive to the development of creative solutions for the significant research challenges facing the built environment.
