Personal profile

Interests

Head of Architecture Dr Sarah A Lappin (BA Columbia, MArch Princeton, PhD University of Ulster, RIBA)  is an architect who teaches theory, design and professionla skills at Queens University Belfast.  As a practitioner, she worked on a large range of projects including preservation and healthcare.  Dr Lappin is co-founder of the All-Ireland Architectural Research Group, and is past Chair of the Steering Group of the Architectural Humanities Research Association. 

Research Summary
Dr. Lappin's research interests include architecture and identity and twentieth century architectural history.  Her recent publications include the book Full Irish: New Architecture in Ireland (Princeton Architectural Press) 2009, as well as articles on architecture and cultural policy.  Much of her research in recent years has concentrated on manifestations of identity in 20th century on the island of Ireland, including research into the Festival of Britain (published in the volume AHRA Critiques series Peripheries in 2012).  Dr Lappin's further research into modernism and its local manifestations in Ireland acted as part of the Irish pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale for Architecture.  

Additionally, Dr Gasia Ouzounian (Oxford University, Music) and Dr. Lappin co-direct the research group Recomposing the City: Sonic Art & Urban Architectures, which investigates how collaborations between sound artists and architects can generate new ways of understanding, analyzing and transforming urban environments.
