The Department of Architecture at the University of Pretoria focuses on the complementary fields of architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture. 

Following an ecosystemic approach, the Department’s three programmes and its research focus areas are mutually supportive and are often integrated into transdisciplinary research projects with partners in industry, government and local communities. The Department’s research foci are built around the objective of creating resource-efficient, resilient and regenerative built environments, which respect both the landscape and the cultural context, improving ecological integrity, while contributing to a sense of meaningful place and socialecological wellbeing within rapidly changing local and global contexts.
