Lines of flight is a space that brings together the intersections, crossings and weaving of the spatial research and practice of its members. It serves as a place for sharing knowledge, initiating discussions between ourselves and others, and leaves traces as a diary and archive.

Lines of Flight is situated within  the PhD programme of the Sheffield School of Architecture and the research group Design Engagement and Practice, which focuses on Transformative Research into Architectural Practice and Education. We have been gathered together through Doina Petrescu’s mentorship, and extend out into the world through our collaborations, practices and localities.

Since its beginnings 10 years ago, there have been numerous iterations of the group and of the website. In this current iteration, this website is intended to be an repository of the material and events produced by the Lines of Flight research group, network of relations, archive of group members and activities.
