UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering



UCL IEDE is carrying out world-leading research in sustainable building design and engineering.

Our research is original, influential and relevant to the biggest practical and scientific challenges facing industry, policymakers and academia.

At the heart of this is a commitment to working across disciplines, drawing knowledge and skills from across the Bartlett and UCL more widely. Our collaborations seek to address UCL’s Grand Challenges in:

  • Sustainable Cities
  • Intercultural Interaction
  • Wellbeing
  • Global Health


We have received three successive EPSRC Platform Grants, while in the last national Research Assessment Exercise The Bartlett was awarded the highest percentage of 4* (world-leading) projects among architecture and built environment submissions from UK universities.
