University of Sheffield School of Architecture
SSoA is one of the leading schools of architecture in the UK. In 2014 SSoA launched their own ‘Urban Room’ called Live Works, located in Sheffield city centre. It is used to combine research, teaching and outreach to foster better citizen participation in the development of neighbourhoods, towns and cities, with a particular focus on the city of Sheffield. Since the launch in 2014, Live Works has worked with many local partners across the city and region, and engaged over 8500 members of the public, 2000 of which have visited our city centre Urban Room. Many of the projects are interdisciplinary and work with academics across the University to benefit clients with best practice and expertise from the arts, education, social sciences and humanities.
