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.
